Module Description

This module is designed to improve your skills in analyzing data and reporting on research findings. The data used in this module was collected in module QS204. In this module you will go step-by-step through the process of cleaning data, analyzing the validity and reliability of primary data, developing a strategy for dealing with missing observations and variables, and exploring bivariate and multivariate associations within the data collected.
