|Meta-analysis for Data Science and Business Analytics Training Lynda.com|
In a world where nearly everyone uses data to inform their business methodologies, an emerging consensus is that more emphasis needs to be placed on validating data; verifying that data-driven conclusions are accurate; and minimizing the risk that your conclusions are incorrect.

This advanced-level course for data science and statistics practitioners and researchers covers raw mean differences—specifically for experimental and comparison groups—and how to convert useful outcome measures such as relative risk and odds ratios to commensurate measures of effect size. Plus, learn about how confidence intervals are created for binary outcome measures.
