Generalized Linear Models
A new program for depression is instituted in the hopes of reducing the number of visits each patient makes to the emergency room in the year following treatment. Predictors include (among many others) treatment (yes/no), race, and drug and alcohol usage indices. A common and minimally invasive treatment for jaundice in newborns is exposure to light. Yet the cost of this is high, mainly because of longer hospital stays, which are expensive. Predictors of the cost include race, gestational age, and birthweight.
