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 with the emphasis on statistical techniques applicable to the social sciences, although these introductory techniques are also appropriate to the health sciences. Key examples from journal articles will be presented to illustrate the use and reporting of the statistical techniques covered in this unit.

Our approach to learning will be largely non-mathematical, concentrating on concepts rather than mathematical theory. Participants familiar with the use of a statistical software package, but lacking statistical training should also start with this course.

SOFTWARE

The course will be using the free and open-source software jamovi. The software jamovi 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 in many ways is easier to use.

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 either jamovi or IBM Statistics v28.
