Applying Statistics in Research: Case Studies
Instructor: Nels Johnson

The primary purpose of this short course is to illustrate the steps and the thought process statistical collaborators often go through when given a set of data analyze, particularly data that needs more complicated statistical methods. Heavy emphasis will be placed on graphical methods for exploratory data analysis and diagnosing model fit. The statistical modeling techniques illustrated might be considered advanced to many attendees. However, for the purpose of this course it is more important to understand why the advanced methods are chosen, and not necessarily how to actually implement them.
