Training-Workshop on Multivariate Statistics for Social Research in Education

March 26-28, 2020
Belian Hotel, Tagbilaran City, Bohol, Philippines

The research design in the Philippines has remained largely descriptive in the last 30 years. There are few attempts to use multivariate statistics because of the scarcity of statisticians who handle the class since most Statistics subjects are taught by non-statisticians. Thesis advisers and panelists who do not know multivariate analysis discourage students from using it in their research design. The poor research design is the reason for rejection of papers for publication both here and abroad. Hence, this training provides hands-on exercise on the use of software for multivariate statistics to actualize the concept taught. It is expected that significant improvements in research design will be attained by the participants. The training will be facilitated by Dr. Ivy Corazon A. Mangaya-ay, a graduate of Ph. D. in Statistics from the University of the Philippines.

Training Objectives:

  • Perform Multivariate Analysis in R Software;
  • Apply Multivariate Statistics in Social Research; and
  • Address research problems that deals with multiple variables and high dimensional data.
