Can you prove that one thing, such as poverty, triggers another, such as children's poor results in school tests? In this hands-on class with Crina Boros, an award-winning, London-based investigative reporter and data journalism trainer, you will learn about the power of relational statistics with a hands-on introduction to linear regression. The concept is broken down and every element of how to get from idea to result interpretation is explained. Some familiarity with statistics is preferable, but if you've been doing DDJ for a couple of years, that would also work. You will need Windows: Excel 2007 or newer, full versions; access to the internet; Apple: Excel 2016 or newer; machine permission to download data on your computer. Other spreadsheet apps, such as Excel online, Numbers, Office Libre etc., will not work.
