THEME: Emerging Trends in Statistical Development
VENUE: Bohol Tropics, Tagbilaran City
DATE: 19-21 September 2018
The goal of the training series is to introduce the participants to the R software in analyzing data collected across space and time from a wide variety of industries. Moreover, the basic underlying assumptions of each model will be discussed so that practitioners know when to use the statistical model in ensuring the validity of the analysis. A practical approach using examples from different fields will be applied in teaching the interpretation of models and presentation of results in various contexts.
