In the lecture will be discussed how real-life analytical projects are different to many academic examples that students have typically seen.
The talk is centered around three topics:
- Starting phase of a project: data collection and data wrangling and possible difficulties associated with the process.
- The research question and answer, how the analytical process moves from a broad question, into a testable model and the choice of methods to apply.
- What to do with results we got, how to generalize from the data, think about external validity and answer the research question we started with.
The lecture is based on the speaker's new textbook: Békés-Kézdi: Data Analysis for Business, Economics, and Policy (Cambridge UP 2021)
