Information

Aims, contents and method of the course

The course is designed as an introduction into statistical data analysis and organised in four thematical blocs:
(1) regional statistics and indices;
(2) statistical analysis of regional variations, correlations and dynamics,
(3) statistical analysis of metric survey data,
(4) statistical analysis of categorical survey data.
Registration via UNIVIS-online.

Assessment and permitted materials

Home exercises (1/3) and final exam (2/3); the final exam includes open questions and interpretations and multiple choice questions.

Minimum requirements and assessment criteria

Main targets of the course are the mediation of basic statistical concepts and analytical tools, the acquirement of practical knowledge in handling the statistical program SPSS, the exercising of the translation of empirical questions into statistical analyses and the training of the interpretation of results.

Examination topics

The course will take place partly in classroom NIG (theoretical part), partly in the computer training classroom (practical exercises and tutorials). A detailed plan with all dates is available the billboard next to my room.
Attendance is compulsory for the theoretical and exercise part.
All analytical work steps and procedures will be exercised jointly at the computer with real regional and survey data from Austria. A detailed manual will be provided to support individual pacing of learning processes.
Students will have to do exercises in statistical analysis and interpretation on their own related to each of the four thematical blocs. Two tutors will provide help. Excercises will be corrected and problems and results will be discussed jointly.
