Introduction

The training is essential in the development of better understanding of the concepts of statistics. It will provide the participants with a general idea of computer assisted data analysis. Additionally, the training will also focus on developing skills that are crucial to the transformation of data using SPSS.

 

Course Objective:

  • Performing operations with data: define variables, recode variables, create dummy variables, select and weight cases, split files
  • Building charts in SPSS: column charts, line charts, scatterplot charts, boxplot diagrams
  • Performing the basic data analysis procedures: Frequencies, Descriptives, Explore, Means, Crosstabs
  • Testing the hypothesis of normality
  • Detecting the outliers in a data series
  • Transform variables
  • Performing the main one-sample analyses: one-sample t test, binomial test, chi square for goodness of fit
  • Performing the tests of association: Pearson and Spearman correlation, partial correlation, chi square test for association, loglinear analysis

 

Duration

5 days

 

Who should attend?

The course targets project staff, researchers, managers, decision makers, and development practitioners who are responsible for projects and programs in an organization.
