Description:

In this course, you will obtain a solid foundation in basic statistical concepts and procedures to progress with some confidence into more advanced topics. This is an introductory unit in statistical methods emphasising statistical techniques applicable to the social sciences, although these introductory techniques are also relevant to the health sciences. Key examples from journal articles will illustrate the use and reporting of the statistical techniques covered in this unit.

The approach to learning will be largely non-mathematical, concentrating on concepts rather than mathematical theory.

Software
The course will use the free and open-source software jamovi, which can be downloaded from https://www.jamovi.org/download.html.

While jamovi is built on top of the R statistical language, it has a look and feel very similar to IBM SPSS Statistics and is easier to use in many ways.

Depending on student preferences, there will be an opportunity to use IBM SPSS Statistics v28. Instructions will be provided for both packages, and students can choose to use either jamovi or IBM SPSS Statistics v28.
