Statistical Evidence: December 20th, 2-4 pm
Tue, 20 December 2016, 2:00 PM – 4:00 PM EST
We will explore the role of evidence in research. We will cover the different types of evidence and understand what is the role of the most common measure of evidence, the p-value, in research. Study design is arguably even more important than the p-value as an indicator of the level of evidence that a study can offer. We will talk about the different study designs, in particular, randomization, missing values, systematic biases and non-random sources of error, all of which contribute to the level of evidence of a given study.
This workshop is aimed at anyone from CAMH but will be specifically important to those involved in the research process. This workshop along with two others: Statistical Models, P-value and Power & The Role of Reproducibility and Replication in Science, that will be announced shortly, will be a pre-requisite for Advanced SPSS and SAS workshops to be held in the near future.
