CeFH lunch seminar: Quantile regression
About the CeFH lunch seminars
Our lunch seminars are informal research seminars that are held normally every Friday. Both researchers at the Centre and researchers from all over the world present interesting topics in fertility and health. The presentations include new research ideas, projects, results and methods as well as possible collaborative projects.
Although primarily aimed at researchers at the Centre, the seminars are also open to other researchers at the Norwegian Institute of Public Health.
Please contact Fredrik Swift if you have questions about the seminar or if you would like to give a presentation
Håkon will give a "gentle introduction" to quantile regression, a regression method for continuous outcomes that has many advantages over ordinary linear regression, but is rather underused in medical statistics and epidemiology. He will show some examples using birth weight as outcome.
