ISER-N is pleased to announce a short course on Survey Data Analysis to be organized from November 25-29, 2013. The training is organized in collaboration with the Survey Research Center (SRC) of the University of Michigan, USA. This short course on “Survey Data Analysis” is designed to provide practical skills on the state-of-the-art of survey data analysis techniques with intensive hands-on computer exercises using commonly available computer software. The main goal is to provide hands on experience to empirically answer research questions using state-of-the-art survey data analysis techniques. This course will focus on survey data and data quality; types of research questions that can be answered using survey data; and appropriate data analysis techniques. This course is designed to have intensive hands-on practical skills to generate statistical outputs and interpretation of the results (with examples from peer-reviewed scientific articles published in world class scientific journals). The hands-on exercise will extensively use large scale real world survey data. The course will also cover an overview of research ethics and the process of publication in peer-reviewed scientific journals.

This course will be jointly conducted by highly experienced resource persons of the University of Michigan (Dr. Dirgha Ghimire, Dr. Prem Bhandari) and ISER-N (Mr. Bishnu Adhikari)
