  • Trends, Challenges and the Art of Survey Writing for Research: Online

    10 - 11 October 2022

    Trends, Challenges and the Art of Survey Writing for Research: Online https://dresa.org.au/events/trends-challenges-and-the-art-of-survey-writing-for-research-online We are in the middle of a data revolution. Research and decision-making in the private, not for profit and public sectors are not immune from these trends, and have become increasingly data-driven. Data collection is a significant part of this, and the use of surveys has become increasingly important to gather information on public opinion and consumer behaviour. However, there have been some high profile misses in recent years: the 2016 US Presidential election and Brexit being the most significant of these. What caused these errors, and can good survey design save us from making the same mistakes? Taught by an instructor with real-world experience as a campaign consultant, survey researcher and data scientist, this masterclass will focus on teaching you about survey design. We will explore how surveys can be effectively used to collect data for research, target campaigns and messaging, or design policy. You will be shown how modern survey research works, and sometimes doesn’t, how technology and social trends are changing survey research, and the best ways to write effective survey questions. It will provide you with the knowledge and skills to develop the survey instruments needed for data-driven research, decision making and advice. 2022-10-10 10:00:00 UTC 2022-10-11 16:00:00 UTC ACSPRI ACSPRI info@acspri.org.au [] [] 12 workshop open_to_all survey designsurvey researchsurvey instruments

  • Multi-level Analysis using Mplus: Online

    16 - 20 January 2023

    Multi-level Analysis using Mplus: Online https://dresa.org.au/events/multi-level-analysis-using-mplus-online This course is designed as an introduction to the concepts and techniques required to analyse data that is multi-level in nature. (That is, data that is derived from subjects who are nested within groups or data that involves repeated measures that are nested within subjects) In conventional regression analysis it is assumed that subjects are randomly selected and, therefore, all the variance in your dependent variables is due solely to variation amongst individuals. However, in most studies, subjects are clustered within a group and multiple groups are sampled. For example, in an education study, we may have students clustered within multiple classes; in a human resourcing study, we may have employees clustered within multiple work units or teams. In such sampling, although some of the variance in your dependent variables will be due to variation amongst individuals, some the variance in your dependent variables will also be due to variation amongst the groups themselves. In such cases, multilevel analysis (MLA) should be employed to account for the different levels of variation. Repeated measure designs should also be analysed using multilevel analysis because the repeated observations are nested within subjects. For example, in a marketing study, we may have repeated measures of consumers’ attitudes to a brand over the life of a marketing campaign; in an epidemiology study, we may have repeated measures of a health outcome over the life of a drug treatment regime. In such studies, although some of the variance in your dependent variables will be due to variation across the various time occasions, some the variance in your dependent variables will also be due to variation amongst individuals themselves. Again, in such cases, multilevel analysis (MLA) should be employed to account for the different levels of variation. 2023-01-16 10:00:00 UTC 2023-01-20 16:00:00 UTC ACSPRI Online, Australia Online Australia ACSPRI info@acspri.org.au [] [] 12 workshop open_to_all multilevel modellingSEMStatistical MethodsStatistics

Notes will be provided and a set of exercises, covering a variety of data sets, will be run together during the lecture and also individually at the end of the day. The course content is particularly suited for those involved in research in the business, education, social and health sciences. Participants will first be introduced to the foundations of R such as libraries, matrix manipulation, objects, and data frames. Participants will use R Markdown in RStudio to generate reports, tables and graphics to Word, PDF and HTML files. Once the foundations have been covered a variety of data management skills will introduced (e.g. filtering data, merging data). The production of descriptive statistics tables and graphs will be covered so that participants can easily use RStudio to explore data and produce reports. The last session on each day will finish with a set of exercises for participants to run on their own and practice what they have learned that day. Please note that due to the short 2-day structure, there will not be any time set aside for analysing participant’s own data. 2023-01-19 09:30:00 UTC 2023-01-20 17:00:00 UTC ACSPRI Online, Australia Online Australia ACSPRI info@acspri.org.au [] [] 12 workshop open_to_all R softwareIntroductoryR statistical software
  • Data Analysis in R: Online

    6 - 10 February 2023

    Data Analysis in R: Online https://dresa.org.au/events/data-analysis-in-r-online This course is intended for applied data analysts, including academics and postgraduate students, policy specialists and others. It will examine questions dealt with in public policy, the social sciences and industry, using real data. This includes surveys, and economics and public health data. This is a problem-based course for subject matter experts who want to use R to take their quantitative analysis to the next level. By the end of the week you will be able to better conduct descriptive analysis and regression in R, and will be able to create impressive looking data visualisations. R is open source and free. It is flexible, powerful and intuitive and it is excellent for data visualisation. As it is open source, R has thousands of developers in leading universities, corporate research labs and other institutions across the world. This means its capabilities tend to exceed competing software, with new packages added or updated daily. This is particularly the case for data visualisation, in which R tends to lead the pack. As there is no licence, you can take it with you wherever you go. No matter where you work, you don't have to change software packages when you change employers. Consequently, R has becoming increasingly popular for academic research, economics analysis and public policy development. This trend is only likely to continue. Being skilled in R will help build your personal capabilities and employment opportunities by making you a more flexible worker capable of undertaking analysis many other researchers and analysts cannot. 2023-02-06 10:00:00 UTC 2023-02-10 16:00:00 UTC ACSPRI Online, Australia Online Australia ACSPRI info@acspri.org.au [] [] 12 workshop open_to_all R studioR statisticsR statistical softwareIntroductory
