Research Masterclass: Introduction to quantitative data analysis (recording)
14 June 2023
This free 1-hour masterclass with Anthony Manning-Stanley is focussed on quantitative data analysis for research papers.
This masterclass is part of a series of events by the QNI’s Community Nursing Research Forum and is open to all community nurses interested in research.
At the masterclass, speaker Anthony Manning-Stanley introduces and discusses the main concepts related to working with numerical data in research projects. Starting with an exploration of some basic definitions of data types and how we treat these in order to produce various descriptive statistics, the discussion then moves on to consider the inferential statistical tests that can be conducted in order to reach conclusions related to statistical significance. Towards the end of the session we discuss a brief case study to demonstrate working with quantitative data in action, with a walk-through of the various stages and decisions in the data analysis process.
