3-Day Workshop on Research Methods and Data Analysis Using IBM SPSS and “R”
Search for knowledge or any systematic exploration to institute facts is Research. It is about searching systematically for elucidations of problems. No matter what scientific methodology is used, the variables under investigation must always be measured in some way or another. And measurement generates numbers – or data -often much more data than we can manually interpret. As a result, statistical tools have been devised to help the researcher summarize and interpret raw data. Statistical procedures not only provide a way of summarizing data into quick and manageable information, but they also help the researcher make decisions about whether relationships between two or more variables are actually real ones. Statistical methods are playing an ever-increasing role in framing suitable policies in a large number of diversified fields covering natural, physical and social sciences. Statistics today have become indispensable in all fields of human endeavor.
To address challenges and opportunities in the field of research, and to help researchers conduct research in an accurate and meaningful way, numerous software products have been developed. SPSS is one of the most popular software used by researchers widely as SPSS has enabled academicians and researchers to obtain valuable information from the data. Basic knowledge of SPSS is vital for all users before they proceed to surveys and data analyses. This three-day workshop is for beginners with little or no experience in SPSS for Windows who want to acquire the skills and knowledge on getting started with SPSS. Another popular software being in demand these days is “R” which enables researchers to implement a wide variety of statistical and graphical techniques, including linear and nonlinear modeling, classical statistical tests, time-series analysis, classification and clustering etc.
