    This workshop is designed as a gentle introduction to the field of statistics, where absolutely no prior knowledge of statistics is assumed. Workshop participants will also be introduced to two of the most popular statistical software packages, SPSS and R. Participants can choose which package they would like to use during individual hands-on exercises throughout the workshop.

    The workshop will cover:
    * The role of statistics in academic research – summarising data, exploring data, and testing a hypothesis
    * The different types of variables – continuous and categorical
    * Simple graphs for viewing a dataset – scatterplot, histogram, and boxplot
    * An overview of statistical tests and p-values
    * A flowchart for identifying which statistical method to use for particular research questions
    * T-tests and chi-squared tests
    * The importance of testing assumptions made by statistical tests
    * Non-parametric statistics (such as the Mann-Whitney test)
    * A brief overview of linear and logistic regression
    * A very brief overview of more advanced statistical methods
