Based at the Australian Health Services Research Institute (AHSRI) is the Centre for Applied Statistics in Health (CASiH). Members of CASiH come from a variety of backgrounds. All have formal qualifications in statistics or an analyst role in the centre and all have previously worked in areas where they have had to analyse data, prepare reports to present their results and disseminate their findings in other ways.
The focus of all CASiH’s work is to find the story hidden in the data and to present these findings in ways that are clearly understood and easily applied to their health system context.
Members of CASiH have expertise in all areas of applied statistics, including classification development, time series, statistical modelling, regression analysis in its many guises, survey design and analysis and experimental design. They work across all other centres in AHSRI, applying their expertise to the quantitative elements of a wide variety of projects, from their design through to the dissemination of the results.
