Introduction
The training is essential in the development of better understanding of the concepts of statistics. It will provide the participants with a general idea of computer assisted data analysis. Additionally, the training will also focus on developing skills that are crucial to the transformation of data using SPSS.
Course Objective:
 Performing operations with data: define variables, recode variables, create dummy variables, select and weight cases, split files
 Building charts in SPSS: column charts, line charts, scatterplot charts, boxplot diagrams
 Performing the basic data analysis procedures: Frequencies, Descriptives, Explore, Means, Crosstabs
 Testing the hypothesis of normality
 Detecting the outliers in a data series
 Transform variables
 Performing the main onesample analyses: onesample t test, binomial test, chi square for goodness of fit
 Performing the tests of association: Pearson and Spearman correlation, partial correlation, chi square test for association, loglinear analysis
Duration
5 days
Who should attend?
The course targets project staff, researchers, managers, decision makers, and development practitioners who are responsible for projects and programs in an organization.
