Doing Multivariate Analysis (DMA-1)

Fri 25 Nov, Fri 2 Dec 2022


This module will introduce you to the theory and practice of multivariate analysis, covering Ordinary Least Squares (OLS) and logistic regressions. You will learn how to read published results critically, to do simple multivariate modelling yourself, and to interpret and write about your results intelligently.

Half of the module is based in the lecture theatre, and covers the theory behind multivariate regression; the other half is lab-based, in which students will work through practical exercises using statistical software.

To get the most out of the course, you should also expect to spend some time between sessions having fun by building your own statistical models.

Target audience
  • University Students from Tier 1 Departments
  • Further details regarding eligibility criteria are available here
  • You should have a reasonable knowledge of the basic statistical material covered in FiAS and BQA.
  • You will need a working knowledge of Stata. If you haven't learned Stata elsewhere, you have three options: (1) download the materials from "90-minute Stata" and work through them yourself; (2) email the SSRMP Administrator to ask whether a space is available for the first of the FiAS lab sessions, where Stata is introduced (3) enrol in the SSRMP's 'Introduction to Stata' module.

Number of sessions: 4

How to Book

Please complete the Basic Statistics Stream booking request form on the SSRMP website


Moodle is the 'Virtual Learning Environment' (VLE) that the SSRMP uses to deliver online courses.

SSRMP lecturers use Moodle to make teaching resources available before, during, and/or after classes, and to make announcements and answer questions.

For this reason, it is vital that all SSRMP students enrol onto and explore their course Moodle pages once booking their SSRMP modules via the UTBS, and that they do so before their module begins. Moodle pages for modules should go live around a week before the module commences, but some may be made visible to students, earlier.
