Course – Data-analysis and Statistics

October 4, 2022 10.00 - 16.00h

After this course attendees are able to:

  1. Explain the basic principles behind statistical modelling (Central Limit Theorem).
  2. Choose appropriate bivariate data-analysis techniques* (given a particular research question), correctly apply these techniques (by formulating statistical hypotheses, checking the statistical assumptions and deriving the test statistic) and interpret their results in meaningful ways.
  3. Estimate a multivariate regression model, check its assumptions (normality, linearity, homoscedasticity) and interpret its outcomes.

* The following data-analysis techniques will be treated: descriptive data analysis (mean, median, variance, standard deviation), univariate (one sample t-test, proportion test) and bivariate parametric tests (paired/independent samples t-test, ANOVA, Pearson correlation) and a non-parametric test (chi-square).

Course description
In this course attendees will actively work on solving concrete statistical problems in the domains of transport, infrastructure and logistics using various bivariate and multivariate data-analysis techniques. The course will extensively treat the basic principles behind statistical modelling so that attendees really understand what the results of statistical tests mean.
