A Training Programme on Computer Based Data Analysis – Call for Applications (2018)

This programme provides participants with an introduction to the management and analysis of quantitative data using an appropriate software package. The programme explores the nature of quantitative data, the relationship between quantitative analysis and theory building, and some of the major topic areas of statistical analysis. Knowledge of these allows for a more thorough understanding of others’ research, especially as reported in journals and government publications. In addition, these techniques are used in a number of research settings, non-profit organizations, for-profit research institutes, and local, state and national governmental agencies. Revised programme in 2017 introduces two levels.

Level-1: Level one does not require the candidates with prior use of statistical software applications. Level one is focused on general purpose statistical data analysis.

Level-2: Level two focuses more advanced applications in multivariate analysis. Therefore, the level two of the programme expects the candidates either to complete level one of this programme or to participate with equal prior experience with use of statistical software applications.
