Let us know if you are interested in taking this module and we will inform you of the course dates in 2018 when these are confirmed.

Module overview

Learn to programme statistical packages in order to complement statistical skills with advanced techniques.  In each of the two statistical packages, students begin with 20 essential commands and progress towards computer-intensive statistical methods such as simulation, advanced regression modelling techniques, multiple imputation, cross-validation and bootstrapping.

Learn to programme two statistical packages in order to use advanced methods that complement the statistical techniques taught on our other modules.  In part one students begin with 20 essential R commands and progress to graphical methods, advanced regression modelling techniques and simulation.  In part two students begin with 20 essential Stata commands and progress to multiple imputation (for missing data) and resampling methods.  Led by Dr Jason Oke, senior statistician in the NDPCHS statistics group, an experienced teaching team guide students from the basics to advanced topics in R and Stata. 

This course is delivered and assessed wholly online over an intensive 8 weeks.
