Survey Research: A Practical Workshop for Planning, Managing and Analyzing Surveys

12-13 May, 2018 (Thursday-Friday)

 

Quality research always demands thoughtfully framed sample and data collection techniques. The rightly chosen sample leads to good results of study while good survey produces reliability in the research. RCTD is organizing an International Research Workshop “Designing and Conducting Surveys and All Possible Sample Size Determination” on 12-13 May, 2018 through High Definition (HD) Video Conferencing.

 

The goal of this workshop is neither to teach nor to preach survey statistics, but rather to help users bridge the gap between classical and survey statistics in a meaningful and lasting way. The intent is for researchers who are already comfortable with classical statistics to carry out their statistical research programs using survey data with the same level of confidence.

 

This workshop will quickly help you to learn the basics of SPSS for analyzing the types of data that results from most surveys. Participants who have no previous direct experience using SPSS, but have had a statistics course, will be able to analyze survey data using SPSS by the end of the day.

 

The researchers from Universities, Research Institutes, R&D organizations and Social Sector organizations are requested to participate individually or institutional in their own auditorium/office/home from anywhere around the world. The individual participant can participate using a laptop/desktop computer connected through internet. For institutional registration and arrangements, contact us through phone/mobile (03124415574, 00971523560615) or email on workshops@rctd.org.

 

Note: The university/institute will pay the fee after the workshop. We will send all certificates and dvds of workshop recordings through courier.
