The contents of the course aim at giving students an understanding of descriptive vs inferential statistics, univariate and bivariate analysis, data management and analysis in the statistics program SPSS, and the importance of using statistical methods appropriate for the research question and the data at hand. In a simple and applied way, we review basic statistical concepts and work on analysing data using the SPSS statistics program.
The course provides a foundation for the more advanced courses in the QRM research school, but it can also be read independently. It is well suited for doctoral students, researchers and supervisors who want to refresh and further develop knowledge that they acquired long ago.
The course is open to Swedish and international participants.
