About the workshop

This workshop covers the basics of regression analysis, a statistical technique which examines the relationship between variables.

You should have a basic knowledge of some statistical procedures and terminology, such as hypothesis testing, testing for normality and p-values. These are covered in the Quantitative Statistics 1 & Quantitative Statistics 2 workshops. 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.

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.
