We are announcing a course scheduled to take place in May 2005, at the Statistical Services Centre, The University of Reading. Summary information is given below.
Analysis of Binary and Categorical Data
Dates: 11-12 May. Duration: 2 days. Price: £460.
Many investigations often have data where there are only two, or a few, possible categories of response - for example a product may be accepted or rejected after inspection, a crop may or may not become infested with pests, a patient's symptoms can be classified as none, mild, moderate or severe.
This course will explain the techniques for studying associations between outcomes like those mentioned and possible explanatory factors. The emphasis will be on practical application and interpretation rather than theory. A large component of the course will be PC-based practical work based on user-friendly statistics packages such as GenStat, SAS, SPSS and STATA.
