This course is the second part of a sequence of statistical data analysis courses: “Statistical Data Analytic Methods (I)”, “Statistical Data Analytic Methods (II)”, and “Advanced Statistical Data Analytic Methods”. Materials covered in the sequence consist of univariate statistical methods, and multivariate statistical methods. These courses are to help students, primarily from business and social sciences, learn the application of the basic and advanced data analytic techniques. We will emphasize the concepts of every given technique and its use, and will help students learn how to interpret the resulting output obtained from the widely used statistical package SPSS(Statistical Package for Social Sciences) or SAS(Statistical Analysis System).

At the end of this course, students will be able to learn the basics of statistical data analysis, and will be aware of the importance of statistical analysis for conducting a scientific research. A wrongly doing statistical analysis which results in a misleading conclusion is worse than no analysis. Students will be introduced to the essentials of having an appropriate statistical analysis.
