Quantitative methods e-books
These quantitative methods e-books and accompanying quizzes are for direct use in teaching students or for self-study. They aim to build skills in quantitative methods and statistical software and use the Living Costs and Food Survey.
The e-books have been developed through a collaboration of the UK Data Service, National Centre for Research Methods (NCRM), and the Centre for Multi-Level Modelling at the University of Bristol and were created using the StatJR software based on original outputs from a project funded by the British Academy.
