I have data for a PhD that needs someone with:

1. NATIVE ENGLISH SPEAKING skills or very close




to help with a data analysis. They will need to make this a priority as I want it done within the next 2-3 days.

The winner of this bid can be a co-author on the paper but I need someone who is very much a team player and very fast to learn and listen

Hi Rashmi! What sort of data is it? Where would you be publishing ?

Hi, see above :) We will submit to various medical journals
Hello Rashmi,

How are you? Could you tell me what is your research hypothesis? And what statistical test(s) is required?

It's about looking at data from government sources that I have summarized on an excel spreadsheet for each state, medical condition and age cohort and looking to see if the DIFFERENCE IN PREVALENCE OF INFLUENZA reduces between Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and other Australians WITH CERTAIN MEDICAL CONDTIONS REDUCES as INFLUENZA SEVERITY INCREASES

Yes, so Kiril:

What is known:

1) Aboriginal adults have higher rates of notification, hospitalisation, ICU admission and death due to pandemic influenza compared to non-Aboriginal adults
2) People with chronic disease (diabetes, respiratory disease, cardiac disease, etc.) who are infected (notified) with pandemic influenza are at higher risk of severe outcomes (hospitalisation, ICU admission and death), compared to people without those diseases
3) Aboriginal adults have higher rates of chronic diseases compared to non-Aboriginal adults.

Our research question:

Are higher rates of pandemic influenza infection, and severe outcomes in Aboriginal adults fully explained by their higher rates of chronic disease?

OR, to say it another way:

Are rates of pandemic influenza infection amongst Aboriginal adults with chronic disease higher than rates of pandemic influenza in non-Aboriginal adults with chronic disease?

Are rates of severe outcomes amongst Aboriginal adults with chronic disease and pandemic influenza infection higher than rates in non-Aboriginal adults with chronic disease
This can be handled with Regression Analysis.
Hi Rashmi,

I would be really interested to work on this. While not directly studied epidemiology but have read about it in different subjects and keen to learn more.

I would not push to get my name added but would like to help in this task. I have good analytical aptitude, IT skills, a Masters background in Chemistry and interest in social and biological sciences.

Please let me know if this would suit your requirements.

Thank you
