4th Annual Statistical Summer School

Mar 28 2017 Posted: 14:43 IST

The 4th Annual Statistical Summer School will be held at the University of Limerick, June 21st – 23rd 2017.  This Summer School is the fourth in a series being organised collaboratively by the Schools of Education at NUI Galway, University of Limerick and University College Cork.   This Summer School has arisen out of a desire to develop statistical competence in the domain of survey research, while promoting data awareness and impact on policy and intervention.

This year’s Summer School, facilitated by Dr. Laura O’ Dwyer (Boston College), will familiarise people with the strategies, techniques, tactics, and issues in conducting survey research in the social sciences.  It will cover the key stages in the survey research process, including sample design and selection, questionnaire design, pretesting, and data analysis.  The Summer School will include demonstrations and hands-on practice, and detailed materials will be provided.

For more information please see the attached document.  Registration can be completed via the website link available at http://epistem.ie/home-2/summer-school-2017/  Places are limited.
