The UGA Statistical Consulting Center (SCC) announces its inaugural short course, “Exploratory Data Analysis in Excel”. This two hour mini-workshop will be open to faculty, staff and students from Franklin College. The recommended audience is researchers who are new to quantitative research, and who want to learn some simple methods for understanding and displaying data in Excel. A background in statistics is not required.


In this hands-on short course, we will:

  • Review different types of data used in quantitative research
  • Calculate and interpret basic statistical summaries appropriate for different types of data (NO statistical tests)
  • Create graphical displays of data such as pie charts, histograms, bar charts, and scatter plots, appropriate for summarizing different types of data


This short course will be held on Tuesday, July 29, from 2:30 to 4:30 pm in room 307 (computer lab) in the Department of Statistics. While there is no fee on this occasion, you must register to participate in this short course. We will accept up to 30 participants. Directions and further information will be provided upon registration; please click the link below to register. You may email Kim Love-Myers at if you have difficulty registering or have any questions.
