Data Analysis Course Using Stata

3–5 December 2014 (3 days) — Johannesburg, South Africa

Presented by CESAR (Centre for Statistical Analysis and Research)

Learn Stata, Research Methods, Descriptive Statistics and Inferential Statistics in one course.

The course objectives include helping participants achieve the understanding of descriptive and inferential statistics; be able to summarise and present data collected in their settings; and be able to make inferences from data using Stata. The course will teach participants the following:

  • A cool introduction to Stata
  • Data management
  • Data Cleaning
  • Descriptive statistics including Stata graphics
  • Inferential statistics

Participants will be able to produce and interpret basic and intermediate descriptive and inferential statistics using Stata. As a result they will be able to take raw data, clean them, summarise them, analyse them and take appropriate action. They will also be able to interpret published research results for needed action.

A Short Course In Inferential Statistics And Multiple Regression

8–11 December 2014 (4 days) — Johannesburg, South Africa

Presented by CESAR (Centre for Statistical Analysis and Research)

If you can calculate a mean, you can do multiple regression. Experience how we make multiple regression simple.

About the course: Every researcher wants to ensure that observed associations among variables are valid i.e. not due to confounders or bias. Multiple regression models are used to determine risk factors and predictors, adjusting for confounders. Therefore researchers and programme managers should be able to understand and interpret multiple regression methods and outputs.

The objectives of this course objectives include: Bivariate hypothesis testing, understanding validity: bias and confounding, use of regression to control for confounding, logistic and linear regression models, univariate (unadjusted) and multivariate (adjusted) models, building regression models, variable selection techniques, model assumptions, understanding and interpreting outputs This course teaches intermediate to advanced statistics using Stata.

Participants will be able to conduct inferential statistics and estimate measures of effect. They will be able to build statistical models adjusting for confounders, and interpret outputs.
