Anyone who has to do some stats needs to first make the decision about what software to use - SPSS? R? Stata? In this short talk we will work through some of the things to consider in choosing a package, and some of the recent trends in package use in research and in industry.
Speaker: Prof. David Warton, Director of Stats Central, UNSW. David is a professor of statistics specialising at its interface with ecology. He has been wondering what stats package to use for some time and has usually just followed the advice of people who sound like they know what they are talking about.
The talk will be about 30 minutes long and will be followed by (free!) afternoon tea and time for discussion.
Please register by Thursday, 8th November, 10.00 am, so we can cater properly for afternoon tea!
Date and Time: Thursday 8 November 2018 3:00 pm – 4:00 pm AEDT
Location: Red Centre (H13), West Wing, Lecture Theatre G001. Important! Entrance is opposite JG's cafe.
