Introduction to Statistical Concepts and Tests for Administrative Data Research
A 1-day workshop led by Dr. Chris Playford, organised by the ADRC-Scotland, 16th May 2016 (10am - 4.30pm)
The day will be orientated towards participants not routinely undertaking statistical social science or health research, and seeking a refresh of their knowledge.
Many researchers' last exposure to statistical training may have been some time ago (e.g. as part of an undergraduate course); many may find mathematical aspects of statistical methods troublesome.
The workshop particularly suits those short of time and unable to attend longer courses, or who would like to buy a textbook and work through it but never seem to find the time.
Topics will include:
-Levels of Measurement
-Measures of Central Tendency
-Measures of Dispersion
-Constructing and Reading Tables
-The Essential Elements of Probability
-Statistical Tests (e.g. chi-square; t-test; eta; Cramer’s V; gamma; Yate’s correction)
-The essentials of Statistical Inferential
-An Outline of Statistical Models.
