Introduction to Poisson Regression
Building upon the previous webinars in the Conducting Non-Continuous Regression Model series, attendees of webinar 3 will learn how to conduct a Poisson regression model, also known as a log-linear model. Specifically, participants will learn how to predict a dependent variable that consists of count data, given one or more independent variables. This webinar will also introduce people to the idea of incidence rate ratios (IRR; effect size for Poisson regression) and contrast them to odds ratios (OR effect size for logistic regression). A fictional dataset will be provided for attendees to practice the skills taught.
Overall, attendees will leave this webinar with the ability to:
- Explain the difference between incidence rate ratios and odds ratio
- Describe the fundamentals of Poisson regression model
- Perform a Poisson regression model
- Interpret the results of a Poisson regression model
Approved for 1.5 hours of CFLE continuing education credit.
