A highly developed understanding of using statistical models can help your organisation monitor and improve its performance.

This Advanced Statistical Analysis course has been specially designed to help those with a background in statistics to understand and use more advanced statistical models, to make better sense of their data and help improve your organisation’s performance.

By attending this Advanced Statistical Analysis course, gain a better understanding of the concepts behind advanced statistics; learn how to apply the Bayesian model and utilise more complex statistical methods, such as non-linear curves and hypothesis testing to make greater sense of your organisation’s data.

Through highly interactive workshops, you will practice using R programming on public sector datasets, which will help you utilise more advance statistical methods to improve your organisation’s performance.

NB: Please can delegates bring their own laptops.
