For those undertaking research in the social sciences, an ability to handle data is an essential skill. Many researchers in the social sciences use SPSS to perform data analysis, but often formal training in use of the software and how to interpret output is severely lacking. This course concentrates on transforming participants into competent and confident users of SPSS to enable them to conduct independent data analysis for their own research needs.
Statistical Methods for Social Research using SPSS takes a more applied approach to conventional statistics by focusing on encouraging participants to "get their hands dirty with data". Instead of being purely theory-oriented, emphasis will be more on the practical application of a variety of statistical techniques to supplied datasets.
Working with datasets, the course will cover widely-used statistical methods including descriptive statistics, data visualisation, statistical inference, categorical data, correlation and regression, analysis of variance and multivariate analysis (such as factor analysis).
