A two days hands-on workshop on “essential data analyses using SPSS” was conducted on consecutive Saturdays (26th November & 3rd December 2016) at Prime Institute of Public Health to address the common statistical challenges a medical researcher encounters.

The first day workshop was facilitated by Dr. Muhammad Fazal Zeeshan who is PhD from Ohio State University (USA) and director postgraduate program unit at Prime Institute of Public Health. He was accompanied by Dr. Durdana Khan who has done her master degree from Ohio State University and is currently an assistant professor at Peshawar Medical College.

Dr. Zeeshan comprehensively described basic concepts and terminologies of biostatistics. Different data types, data normality and how to choose appropriate statistical tests were discussed in detail in the preliminary session of the workshop. After introduction of SPSS, central tendency tests like mean, median, mode, variance and standard deviation were performed on SPSS. Further in the session, Dr. Durdana Khan explained hypothesis testing and described in detail that how we reject or fail to reject a hypothesis on the basis of P value. The session enabled the participants to successfully performed statistical tests for comparing means of one sample and two sample on provided data set.
