Journal Club/Work in Progress

July 2018 Journal Club

Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health, Building 2, Conference Room 426 (4th Fl)

Please join us for the upcoming Harvard Catalyst Biostatistics Journal Club. Michele Hacker, Roger Davis, and Anna Modest will lead the discussion on the use of inverse probability weighting (IPW) to estimate the cumulative incidence of live birth after multiple cycles of in vitro fertilization. Different approaches have been used to calculate the cumulative incidence of live birth; however, many of these approaches have limitations and potentially violate statistical assumptions. IPW may provide a more valid estimate because it may address potential bias due to loss to follow-up in the population. We will discuss this approach and compare it to a traditional Kaplan-Meier approach as well as a Kaplan-Meier approach assuming no censoring.

Registration not required.
