You're doing a story about a doctor with a high mortality rate. Is she a bad doctor or does she take the sickest patients? Or you're doing a story about a school with low test scores.

We'll show you how to use logistic regression and risk indices to make sure you're comparing apples to apples. Even if you never run a risk adjustment yourself, you'll learn how academics and government agencies risk adjust the data they release.
