OverviewThis workshop introduces participants to the use of statistical techniques for analysis of data sets. Upon completion, participants will be able to use statistics to synthesize useful information from raw data, make statistically reasonable inferences from data, and determine the validity of statistical analysis of data. The workshop is recommended especially for those in the humanities, social sciences, and life sciences who do not have a background in statistics, but may need to use statistics to work with data gathered as part of their coursework or research. Exercises on programming in R are included to give participants hands-on experience with applying concepts for data analysis. Participants will also be given an introduction to areas of current interest in statistics, such as "Big Data" and biostatistics.
- Probability distributions, sampling
- Confidence intervals, hypothesis testing
- Correlation, regression ANOVA
- "Big Data", biostatistics
