Which Stats Software Should I Use? - Seminar Nov 8


Anyone who has to do some stats needs to first make the decision about what software to use - SPSS?  R?  Stata?  In this short talk we will work through some of the things to consider in choosing a package, and some of the recent trends in package use in research and in industry.

The talk will be about 30 minutes long and will be followed by (free!) afternoon tea and time for discussion.

Speaker: David Warton, Director of Stats Central, UNSW (Professor of statistics specialising at its interface with ecology. He has been wondering what stats package to use for some time and has usually just followed the advice of people who sound like they know what they are talking about.)

Date and Time:  Thursday, 8 November 2018,  3.00 to 4.00 pm
