Thursday, 26 October 2017 - 10:00am to 12:00pm

This is the first workshop in a 6-part statistics series.

NOTE: Due to the large # of statistical software available, this session will not be about any specific software but, rather, the methodology behind the software.

Before analysis begins the data should be visually inspected and explored. We will discuss various graphics for univariate and multivariate data and provide tips on how to create meaningful and transparent graphics. We will explain how to compute simple data summaries and descriptive statistics to help guide any future analysis.

We live in a culture that emphasizes being perfect as a virtue in everything from body image to relationships to career achievements. The problem is that life and being human, in spite of our best efforts, is messier than this. Having high standards is one thing, but taking a perfectionistic approach to life can actually get in the way of your success.
