Agenda

2

 Answering Questions  Commonly Used Statistical Methods  What is Statistical Analysis?
• Descriptive Statistics • Inferential Statistics • Statistical Models

Statistical Research and Training Center

Statistical Analysis with STATA May 16 – 20, 2011

Answering Questions
 Many times, we need to answer questions:
• What is the pattern of poverty in the Philippines? • What is the current level of livestock production? • How do SMEs operate? • Why are the poor poor?

3

 Research entails answering questions with the use of scientific methods

Answering Questions
Types of Research:  Qualitative research : based on info from understanding of the behavior of people and institutions, their values, rituals, symbols, beliefs, emotions.  Quantitative research: based on info from surveys, experiments, and administrative records.

Data Description
•Collect Data
•Present Data
e.g. Survey e.g. Tables and Graphs

10

•Characterize Data

e.g. Mean

 xi

n

A Characteristic of a: Population is a Parameter Sample is a Statistic.

Explaining/ Predicting Relationships

11

 When explaining relationships with statistical models, we make conclusions and decisions about a large class of data (called a POPULATION) using SAMPLE results.  This is called INFERENCE and involves
• ESTIMATION • HYPOTHESIS TESTING
