After the training, participants will be able to take raw data collected in their settings, clean them, summarise them, analyse them and take appropriate action. They will also achieve the understanding of descriptive statistics and bi-variate inferential statistics. They will also be able to critically review research reports and papers. In addition to this, participants will be able to use SPSS in their practical professional work to produce neat and reproducible analysis outputs
This course if for those who want to heighten their knowledge of data management and analysis and improve the quality of their outputs. Priority will be given to participants who have some experience with data analysis using Stata or similar software, as well as those who have attended CESAR’s Stata course in the past.
