Economic Data Management and Analysis Course

1st to 12th March 2021



In today's world, good decision making relies on data and data analysis. This course helps participants develop the understanding that they will need to make informed decisions using data, and to communicate the results effectively. The course is an introduction to the essential concepts, tools and methods of statistics for participants in business, economics and similar disciplines. The focus is on concepts, reasoning, interpretation and thinking rather than computation, formulae and theory. Much of the work will require participants to write effectively and communicate their ideas with clarity. The course covers two main branches of statistics: descriptive statistics and inferential statistics. Descriptive statistics includes collecting data and summarising and interpreting them through numerical and graphical techniques. Inferential statistics includes selecting and applying the correct statistical technique in order to make estimates or test claims about a population based on a sample. Topics covered may include descriptive statistics, correlation and simple regression, probability, point and interval estimation, hypothesis testing, multiple regression, time series analysis and index numbers. By the end of this course, participants should understand and know how to use statistics. Participants will also develop some understanding of the limitations of statistical inference and of the ethics of data analysis and statistics. Participants will work in small groups in this course. Software like SPSS, STATA, SAS, POWER BI, EXCEL, R AND PYTHON will be used as per the participants preferences
