Unless you’re a beginner with a stat software package, you *can* learn a statistical topic from a workshop or book that teaches everything in a different package.

But it’s not ideal.

So in 2017, we’re changing how we teach our statistics workshops* to support more software options, starting with this month’s workshop, Analyzing Count Data (which includes software demos for SAS, SPSS, and Stata).

Each module will feature a live webinar lecture (along with all the supplementary material — code, exercises, Q&As, etc.).

This lecture used to include all the statistical concepts, the steps to implement, and a demonstration in one or more software packages.

Now we’re splitting those things up so that you have easier access to the software support you need.

The live webinar lectures are now entirely about the concepts and steps. They will still include examples to show you how the concepts and steps work in different data sets. And you may see software output in those examples, but there will be no how-to-get-the-software-to-do-this in the live webinars.

Instead, we’re giving you additional downloadable videos and code files that demonstrate how to run each example in a specific software program. [click to continue…]
