Workshop: From research question to exploratory data analysis, University of Manchester, 15 January 2016

This is a one day introductory workshop which looks at the initial stages involved in undertaking a research project using survey data from the UK Data Service collection.

We will focus on the steps involved in:

  •       using the UK Data Service Discover tool to locate data
  •       evaluating data for your research purposes
  •       starting to use exploratory analysis to understand your chosen dataset

To do this we will focus on generating research questions about a current topical issue.

This session will use a mixture of presentation, group work and hands-on computing sessions using the UK Data Service website.
