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 clinic 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.

Structure of the Retreat

The retreat will start with a short lecture on “Strategies for data analysis”.

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 focussed 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.
