Data science provides a powerful approach to understanding complexity in our social lives, the natural world, and our digital universes. This course will empower students to act on broad societal questions by 1) translating them to specific data-driven questions, 2) wrangling, analyzing, and visualizing data, and 3) communicating key findings to stakeholders. Our hands-on work will focus on the course's community partner, MetroTransit, who oversees public transportation for the Twin Cities metro area. As a class, we will identify critical questions facing MetroTransit by engaging organizational leaders in discussion and performing our own background research. We will find and wrangle datasets related to our questions, conduct analyses, and create maps and other visualizations. We will present our findings to organizational leaders at MetroTransit. Along the way, students will develop proficiency in R, learn to communicate data insights, and gain experience in a variety of modern data science techniques. This course is designed for students from any background. In particular, it will support students with *no* prior experience with data science, statistics, or programming. This course is residential (students will live together in the same dorm), it is not a writing intensive course, and it will fulfill the QT2 general education requirement.

Class meets TR, 9:40 am - 11:10 am in Neill Hall 400

### Survival Analysis

**Days:**MWF**Meeting Time:**09:40 am-10:40 am**Room:****Instructor:**Vittorio Addona

**Notes:** *ACTC students may register on December 1st with permission of instructor*

Survival analysis refers to a set of methods used for modeling "timetoevent" or "duration" data. In many studies, the outcome of interest is the time between between events (e.g. onset of Alzheimer's until death, time unlit default on a loan, unemployment duration, mariage duration, removaltorecurrence of a tumor, emergency room length of stay). Survival analysis evolved from a practical reality: the precise values of data are often unknown. We will introduce the concepts of censoring and truncation, and discuss the KaplanMeier curve,

parametric regression models, Cox's proportional hazards model, and timevarying covariates. The course will have an applied focus. Examples may be drawn from a variety of fields including, but not restricted to, medicine, economics, sociology, and political science. The course will count toward completion of the concentration in Community and Global Health. This

course counts toward the capstone requirement.
