Statistical Methods for Research Workers - short course


Monday, 7 November 2016 - 9:30am to Wednesday, 9 November 2016 - 5:00pm


UNSW Business School (Building E12), Room 119, UNSW, Kensington Campus

This course is designed as an overview of statistical design and analysis for researchers. There is emphasis on understanding the concepts of statistical procedures (with a minimum of maths, although some will be discussed) and on interpreting computer output. This course is designed to help you, the researcher. It assumes you did an undergraduate statistics subject, and you may need a refresher.

Statistical analyses require specialised software to perform calculations. In this course we use the free statistical program R, although researchers may have another statistical package available to them.

Make sure you bring your own laptop! We will sort out internet access for you.

Course fees for the three days are:

  • UNSW staff, students and other UNSW-affiliated people $450 / $225
  • People with no UNSW affiliation $1,500

Fees include printed course notes, morning and afternoon teas and lunch each day.

The Stats Short Course is based on intellectual property developed by the UNSW School of Mathematics and Statistics.
