Introduction to statistics

Introduction to Statistics (online course)

The course aims to improve the participant’s capability to develop targeted road safety interventions by improving their ability to correctly analyse and interpret data.

The course will achieve this by increasing the participant's awareness and understanding of:

  • The importance of using an evidence-led approach when developing interventions
  • The use and limitations of the Stat 19/ Crash reporting system
  • How to access and interrogate Department of Transport statistical information
  • How to complete a simple analysis of a data field using Excel*
  • Common statistical terms and processes
  • Methods of communicating data to the audience and trend identification

Who should attend?

The course will be suitable for any road safety practitioner who is new to data analysis or who wants to refresh their skills.  It should be noted this is an introduction and therefore will not be suitable for people who have advanced skills in this area.


How is the course delivered?

The course is delivered via Zoom.

*Participants will need to be able to access Excel during the course but a prior understanding of Excel, whilst useful, is not needed. If you have not had any experience using Excel, please let us know when you book the course.
