Workshop: Introduction to Basic Statistics
A quick refresher course for those who have had statistical training in the past or a fast-paced introduction to basic statistics for beginners. Statistical measures such as percentages, averages, frequency and standard error are used widely. But how are they calculated, and exactly what do they tell us? This 8-hour workshop held over 2 days will help participants develop an appreciation of the potential of statistics and a critical eye of when and how they should or shouldn't be used.
Intended Target Audience:
This is an introductory workshop; it may be too basic for advanced data users.
