registrations and venue via Ghent University
Are you concerned about how reproducible your data derived results will be? Have you seen statistics in a class but want to dig deeper? Are you using a statistical method but wonder if it is the best one to use?
The editors of Nature appreciate that it is tricky enough for a scientist to keep up-to-date in their own field, let alone in the ever expanding field of statistics. To help ease the burden on scientists, they have introduced a column on statistics to one of their publications, Nature Methods, called Points of Significance.
On regular occasions during the academic year, a statistician from FIRE or FLAMES will lead a discussion of a statistics topic from a Points of Significance article. We will start with the basics, that is, with the idea of sampling, work our way through a detailed discussion of ANOVA and end with the topic of Bayesian statistics.
This seminar is about Handling Missing Data - the basics:
The talk will introduce the different missing data patterns and mechanisms and the methods suitable for handling each type. Both Adhoc and recent methods for handling missing data will be introduced with particular attention to Multiple imputation. Examples will be presented using RStudio.
