UPPI & DRDF Conduct July 2017 SPSS Training
The UP Population Institute, in collaboration with the Demographic Research and Development Foundation, will be conducting a Training on Data Analysis using SPSS on July 18-21, 2017 for a maximum of 18 individual registrants.
Said training is designed to provide an intensive introduction to the latest version of the Statistical Package for the Social Sciences (SPSS), now known as IBM SPSS Statistics. SPSS is a user-friendly Windows-based statistical software and a powerful and versatile tool for data analysis. The training combines lecture and hands-on laboratory sessions and involves an analysis of a subset of a large dataset.
Recommended for faculty members, graduate students, business analysts and other researchers who want to enhance their data analysis capability, it also targets those with limited statistical background and for those needing an appropriate refresher in statistical analysis.
To be qualified for the training, participants need basic knowledge of statistical concepts and capability in computer operations with MS Windows. While experience with SPSS is not necessary, a basic understanding of the purpose and functions of the software would be advantageous.
The training will cover an overview of SPSS, univariate analysis and graphical presentation, data management, bivariate analysis, and linear regression.
Trainers are UPPI faculty members with extensive experience both in teaching SPSS and in survey data processing and analysis using SPSS. Faculty members from other UP units may also be invited as resource persons. Facilitators or laboratory assistants are available to assist the participants during the hands-on sessions.
Training venue is at the Computer Laboratory II at PH 1314-1316. Sessions begin at 9 am and end at 5 pm.
