In this webinar, you will learn how to gain insight from a random and unbiased data sample of a population:

  • population distribution vs sample mean distribution
  • hypothesis testing
  • statistical significance
  • t-test for comparing two groups and its assumptions
  • non-parametric alternatives to t-test and when to use them
  • one-way and two-way ANOVA for comparing more than two groups

Check out the video below for a teaser from a previous session:

This is the 3rd workshop in a 6-part series focused on the foundations of statistics.

MORE ON THIS SERIES:

Statistics is a scientific discipline that enables reaching meaningful conclusions from data. In order to produce trustworthy results, one needs to be able to justify the choice of the statistical methods and models and to validate the underlying assumptions. 


The aim of this webinar series is to give an overall review of the statistical concepts behind the various methods in statistical software using examples of various data structures.  Interpretations of the results obtained from different statistical tests and models will be discussed. Hence, the aim is not to solve specific project problems. 


If you are a graduate student and have questions about your specific project please see (https://asda.stat.ubc.ca/sos/) on how to take advantage of a one-hour free statistical consultation. Each webinar has some self-contained content but some aspects will build on concepts taught in the previous sessions so there is a benefit in attending all the webinars.
