Thursday, July 12, 2018 - 9:00am to 12:00pm
at IDRE Portal (5628 Math Sciences Building)

This seminar teaches the “grammar” of graphics that underlies the ggplot2 package, allowing the user to build eye-catching, publication-quality graphics easily and intuitively, layer-by-layer.  The seminar focuses on producing statistical graphics throughout the data analysis process, including exploratory graphs, graphs of model effects and diagnostic graphs to assess model assumptions.

at IDRE Portal (5628 Math Sciences Building), UCLA

This workshop will cover both descriptive and inferential statistics with complex survey data. We will also discuss some graphical methods that can be used with weighted data.

Thursday, July 26, 2018 - 9:00am to 12:00pm
at IDRE Portal (5628 Math Sciences Building)

This seminar will give a practical overview of both principal components analysis (PCA) and exploratory factor analysis (EFA) using SPSS. We will begin with variance partitioning and explain how it determines the use of a PCA or EFA model. For the PCA portion of the seminar, we will introduce topics such as eigenvalues and eigenvectors, communalities, sum of squared loadings, total variance explained, and choosing the number of components to extract. For the EFA portion, we will discuss factor extraction, estimation methods, factor rotation, and generating factor scores for subsequent analyses. The seminar will focus on how to run a PCA and EFA in SPSS and thoroughly interpret output, using the hypothetical SPSS Anxiety Questionnaire as a motivating example.
