Free Research Tool Workshops

The Cornell Institute for Social and Economic Research (CISER) is offering free research tool workshops. CISER provides workshops on a variety of topics, including the use of statistical software packages. Workshops cover both qualitative and quantitative statistical software packages. You can sign up for any of the below workshops.

Introduction to SAS
Day 1 will provide an overview of SAS and why it is so widely used. Topics will include: creating SAS data sets, reading raw data files, creating temporary and permanent SAS data sets, generating summary reports and frequency tables, simple procedures, labeling variables, distinguishing between numeric, and character variables and identifying common programming logic errors. Day 2 will cover procedures for statistics, ODS, merging data sets as well as validating and cleaning data.
February 8 and 13, 5:00pm - 7:30pm both days.

Advanced Stata
Learn to use advanced features of Stata software.
February 12, 5:00pm - 7:30pm

Curating for Reproducibility
Replication of results is a core requirement of the scientific method. Satisfying this requirement becomes increasingly complex when data from disparate sources is integrated and reused. While code used for analysis of data must be verified, it is also imperative that code and processes used to clean, integrate and harmonize data be documented and verified. This can be time-intensive and intimidating, especially for individual researchers seeking to openly share their work. Work done by research teams producing multiple versions of source code can make replication considerably more complicated.
March 20, 2:00pm - 4:30pm

Introduction to Atlas.Ti
Learn how to create a hermeneutic unit (project) in Atlas-ti. You will learn how to assign documents, quote and code segments of text, write comments and memos, create and assign relations between codes or quotes, and view the relationships using the Network view. You will also learn how to create families of primary documents and codes, produce output, search for text, auto code, copy bundle, as well as export to an SPSS job. You may bring your own qualitative data for processing during the workshop.
April 19, 2:00pm - 4:30pm

Using NVivo as a Research Tool
NVivo is software that supports qualitative and mixed methods research. It’s designed to help users organize, analyze and find insights in unstructured, or qualitative data like: interviews, open-ended survey responses, articles, social media and web content.
April 23, 2:00pm - 4:30pm
