Instructor: Jayash Paudel
Python is a popular general-purpose programming language that has been used for a broad range of applications. Designed for social scientists with some introductory background in Python, the workshop will cover topics on how to perform basic statistical operations and run a simple linear regression. Participants are strongly recommended to take “Exploring Data on Python” before this course.
By the end of this workshop, participants will be able to:
- Perform preliminary statistical operations such as mean, median and mode
- Write a code that runs a standard ordinary least squares (OLS) regression
- Generate simple plots based on a simple linear regression
