Research Methodology, Data Management, Analysis and Reporting using SPSS

Training Course on Research Methodology, Data Management, Analysis and Reporting using SPSS

INTRODUCTION
Research, Data Management, Graphics & statistical analysis has always been integral parts of development work and has been playing a critical role towards achieving of Sustainable development Goals (SDGs). As a result, knowledge of research methodologies and application of statistical application software's to support data analysis in this era is very important. Statistical Packages for Social Sciences (SPSS) has proved to be quite useful for the purpose of data management, graphical representation, and statistical analysis of data. SPSS application is user-friendly, reduces the time and efforts of the researcher employed in the process research. This course aims at equipping participants with knowledge and vast skills which will enable them to use SPSS in Data Management, Graphics & statistical analysis.
