This course prepares participants to begin running data analysis on databases. Both univariate and multivariate analysis are covered with a particular focus on regression analysis. Regression analysis is done in Excel, SAS, and Stata to give viewers a sense of familiarity with a variety of different software package structures. The focus in this course is on financial data though the techniques are also applicable to more general forms of data like that used in marketing or management analyses.
