TRAINING ON QUANTITATIVE DATA MANAGEMENT AND ANALYSIS WITH SPSS
The training is essential in the
development of better understanding of the concepts of statistics. It will
provide the participants with a general idea of computer assisted data
analysis. Additionally, the training will also focus on developing skills that
are crucial to the transformation of data using SPSS.
By the end of this course the
participant should be able to:
·Performing operations with data: define
variables, recode variables, create dummy variables, select and weight cases,
·Building charts in SPSS: column charts, line
charts, scatterplot charts, boxplot diagrams.
·Performing the basic data analysis procedures:
Frequencies, Descriptive, Explore, Means, Cross tabs.
·Testing the hypothesis of normality
·Detecting the outliers in a data series
·Performing the main one-sample analyses:
one-sample t-test, binomial test, chi square for goodness of fit
·Performing the tests of association: Pearson and
Spearman correlation, partial correlation, chi square test for association,
The course targets project staff,
researchers, managers, decision makers, and development practitioners who are
responsible for projects and programs in an organization
