ABSTRACT

Extended Abstract (WORD/PDF)

A Multivariate Regression Analysis of Hospital Stays in a Nosocomial Infection Control Data

In this report we developed and analyzed several linear regression models to predict hospital stays (or length of Stay) of patients in the US using the SENIC project data from CDC-Atlanta. We examined several potential exploratory variables and their relations with the response variable “Stay”, with the goal of determining what leading factors influenced the length of stay of patients in this Nosocomial (hospital acquired) infection control data. In particular, our report aimed at answering the following: given the data, what leading factors help explain the hospital stays of patients in US? In at least one model, we found that Age and Regions influenced the variable “Stay” the most.

Keywords: Linear Regression, Nosocomial, Predictors, Response

The goal of CERSER is to develop and implement innovative and relevant education and research collaborations focused on ice sheet, coastal, ocean, and marine research.

Science Gateways Community Institute

https://sciencegateways.org
The Science Gateways Community Institute (SGCI) was established to provide resources, services, experts, and ideas for creating and sustaining science gateways. Science gateways are online interfaces that give researchers, educators, and students easy access to specialized, shared resources that are specific to a science or engineering discipline. For example, they may connect to or between instruments (such as telescopes or sensors), data collections, specialized software, or high-performance computing.


WHO WE ARE

The goal of CERSER is to develop and implement innovative and relevant education and research collaborations focused on ice sheet, coastal, ocean, and marine research. CERSER is also part of the Science Gateways Community Institute (SGCI) which provides coordinating activities across the National Science Foundation, eventually providing services more broadly to projects funded by other agencies. Sharing expertise about technologies and strategies would allow developers to concentrate on the novel, the challenging, and the cutting-edge development needed by their specific user communities.
