The social world is complex and messy. Statistical models provide a formal approach to evaluate data, test ideas and investigate research questions.

This is a one day workshop on statistical models for social science data analysis. It will introduce the underlying concepts associated with multivariate analysis using statistical models. The workshop will concentrate on models within the generalized linear modelling framework. It will cover linear regression, and models for binary, categorical, ordered categorical and count data. The focus of the workshop will on social science applications, and social science data and research questions will be showcased throughout. The emphasis will be on interpreting outputs (e.g. from data analysis software packages) and understanding published results.

The event is intended to be engaging and informative and there will be audience participation and practical demonstrations.

This is not a practical workshop and it does not provide training in the use of data analysis software. It will however provide a strong theoretical foundation for future engagement at practical workshops that are designed to provide hands-on training in data analysis.

A high level of mathematical ability is not required, but participants should ideally have undertaken an introductory statistics and data analysis course (e.g. a semester long module as part of a Masters degree).

Course Timings: 10:00am - 4:00pm

Level: Intermediate (some prior knowledge)
