About the workshop

This workshop provides a basic introduction to statistical analysis of quantitative data. No previous statistical knowledge is assumed, but you should be familiar with using a Windows PC and will need your BUCS login details. Computer-based exercises will use SPSS, a widely used statistical package. This workshop is later followed by 'Quantitative statistics 2' where these initial topics will be explored further.

If you require specific advice on statistical analysis of your own research data, please contact the University's Statistics Advisory Service to arrange one-to-one guidance.
