One more step from the Basic 1 workshop, this workshop will introduce how to conduct several more advanced statistics, and basic of SPSS programming. You will learn how to use weights, run multivariate ANOVA and logistic regression, and build simple syntax file.

This workshop will be half "point and click" and half programming, however, previous programming experience is not required. At the end of the workshop, we will introduce ICPSR and several other data resources.
