SAA’s Committee on Research, Data, and Assessment (CORDA) presents a limited-enrollment workshop to teach the fundamentals of acquiring, normalizing, analyzing, and reporting on data about the archives profession. The testbed dataset for the workshop is the dataset resulting from SAA’s A*CENSUS (2004) and reported partially in a special issue of American Archivist (vol. 69, no. 2, Fall/Winter 2006). Working from a list of pre-determined research questions, you’ll learn how to formulate structured data for analysis, run a variety of statistical analyses using readily available analysis software, and report the results in tables and charts. This workshop will advance your data analysis skills and prepare you to make use of the SAA Dataverse repository as the number and variety of datasets increase. Registered participants will receive a workbook in advance of the workshop. (Limited to 50 participants. Separate fee of $49.)
