Target participants: Those who may need to apply statistical techniques and modelling for research purposes

This seminar will cover regression analysis, analysis of variance and some non-parametric tests. Regression analysis is a statistical technique for estimating the relationship among variables which have possible cause and effect relations. You will review a variety of regression analysis techniques, such as multiple regression, hierarchical regression and binary/multinomial logistic regression. The assumptions of these regression analysis techniques – normality, linearity, no extreme values and missing value analysis – will be examined. As part of the analysis of variance, the analysis of covariance (ANCOVA) and some post-hoc comparison tests will be discussed. Nonparametric statistics, which are statistics not based on parameterized families of probability distributions, have been more widely used in research in recent years. The seminar will cover major nonparametric tests for research purposes.

You may register for the seminar here.
