Biostatistics/Statistics

ORAU applies methods of statistical analysis appropriate for your unique health focus

For data to be meaningful, it must be accurately analyzed, interpreted in a practical manner and then clearly explained. Statistical analysis can be applied to a variety of problems in occupational health, as well as other areas as diverse as radiation dose reconstruction and early childhood vaccination information.
