Analysing and Presenting Data
Data can provide compelling insights that can benefit every area of policy and service delivery, from improving our health and education systems, to creating economic and job opportunities. However, knowing where to look and which elements of your data to use is a skill that often goes far beyond basic statistical comparisons.
In this practical full-day workshop, participants will be introduced to a range of analytical techniques that can help them make the most of the data available to them – and reduce the time and cost of applying their data in the development of evidence-based policy.
What to expect…
This full-day workshop will work through a variety of real-life case studies and hands-on activities, helping you to identify those analytical and presentation methods that are best suited to your specific work.
Why you should attend…
By the end of the workshop, you will understand:
The purpose of data and analysis, and what it is trying to achieve
Different analysis techniques and methods – trends, growth, benchmarking, etc.
How to gather and construct datasets
Common traps and pitfalls in data analysis
Incorporating data analysis into reports and proposals
Techniques for presenting data in tables and charts.
How this course applies to you…
By the end of this course you will have knowledge of practical approaches to working with the data in our organisations and policy areas, seeing it from different perspectives, and considering ways in which we can share our data – and the findings from our data – with others.
