About This Course
Due to popular demand, CESAR is organising a data analysis retreat where researchers can come in with their datasets and work along with other researchers under the guidance and support of published statisticians and experts. This data retreat is a practical data analysis workshop.
Many researchers have basic and intermediate statistical skills needed to do major analysis in their work. Often, they require assurance, statistical support and guidance to confidently complete their research report or article. If you are in this position, this twice-in- a-year opportunity is for you. CESAR will be running a data analysis retreat for researchers who need hands-on statistical support to complete their projects. This workshop will be facilitated by three experts who have experience in health, education, economic and applied research.
Every year, CESAR trains hundreds of researchers on data analysis courses. This clinic is an opportunity for many of those researchers and other researchers to hone their data analysis skills. Creating an enabling environment for statistical analysis and report writing is something every researcher would like to tap into for maximum productivity.
For efficiency and maximum outputs, the following are expected of participants who wish to attend this workshop:
- Participant has attended CESAR data analysis course
- Used Stata before
- Participant’s objectives for attending are SMART
- Participant will send an example dataset and objectives to CESAR prior to the workshop
The retreat will start with a short lecture on “Strategies for data analysis”. After which, each participant will be asked to describe their overall goal for the three days, as well as specific objectives. For example, a researcher’s goal may be to complete a paper and the specific objectives may be to perform descriptive statistics, bivariate hypothesis testing and modelling of key outcome(s). The objectives will be apportioned across the three days. Each day, rigorous and focused work will be done by each participant with an expert guiding them. Presentations of what was achieved will be done at the end of each day by each participant.
This workshop will provide the following:
- Inspiration to overcome writer’s block
- Statistical support from experts
- Report writing support from published authors
- Daily goal-setting and accountability report
- Discussion on conceptual and practical statistical issues
The course will teach participants the following:
