STATS CENTRAL WILL BE HOLDING MONTHLY SEMINARS DISCUSSING STATISTICAL PRINCIPLES THAT ARE RELEVANT TO RESEARCHERS OF ANY DISCIPLINE. THEY WILL BE HELD ON THE SECOND THURSDAY OF THE MONTH FROM 3PM-4PM AND BE FOLLOWED BY AFTERNOON TEA AND AN OPPORTUNITY FOR DISCUSsION.

 
DESCRIPTION
There are many statistical ideas that are relevant across all areas of research. In this talk, we discuss three key questions to keep in mind when thinking about study design and analysis:
  1. is this the right dataset to answer your question?
  2. what is the uncertainty in that statistic?
  3. are the observations in the data independent?
This will be an informal talk about 30 minutes long and will be followed by afternoon tea and time for discussion.
Please register by Wednesday 7th June, 12:00 pm, so we can cater properly for afternoon tea!
