Statistical Data Analysis using R and STATA Training Workshop

This course will provide an overview of data analytics using STATA and R statistical software. The course will equip you with a comprehensive introduction to STATA and R and its various uses in data management and analysis. You will learn in detail and gain practical experience in manipulating, exploring, visualizing, and modelling different types of data using STATA and R. By the end of the course, you will be able to interpret the statistical outputs/results and the application in real-life situations. Through R you will learn and apply the basics of programming and its application in data visualization and modelling. Requirement: Some basic quantitative/statistical knowledge will be required; this is not an introduction to statistics course but rather the application and interpretation of such using Stata.
