Description:

The social world is complex and messy. Statistical models provide a formal approach to evaluate data, test ideas and investigate research questions.

This is a one day workshop on statistical models for social science data analysis. It will introduce the underlying concepts associated with multivariate analysis using statistical models. The workshop will concentrate on models within the generalized linear modelling framework. It will cover linear regression, and models for binary, categorical, ordered categorical and count data. The focus of the workshop will be on social science applications, and social science data and research questions will be showcased throughout. The emphasis will be on interpreting outputs (e.g. from data analysis software packages) and understanding published results.

The event is intended to be engaging and informative, it will be delivered online during the COVID-19 crisis.

This is not a practical workshop and it does not provide training in the use of data analysis software. It will however provide a strong theoretical foundation for the practical Stata workshop on the 11th October 2022.

A high level of mathematical ability is not required, but participants should ideally have undertaken an introductory statistics and data analysis course (e.g. a semester long module as part of a Masters-level degree).

Cost:

The fee per teaching day is: £30 per day for students registered at a University / £60 per day for staff working for academic institutions, Research Councils and other recognised research institutions, registered charity organisations and the public sector / £100 per day for all other participants. In the event of cancellation by the delegate a full refund of the course fee is available up to two weeks prior to the course. NO refunds are available after this date. If it is no longer possible to run a course due to circumstances beyond its control, NCRM reserves the right to cancel the course at its sole discretion at any time prior to the event.
