The course aims at providing an overview of the current methods and applications of Machine Learning, through theoretical concepts, pedagogical case studies and interactive resources. The course is not based on, nor does it require, a particular software. However reproducible examples are provided using the R/RStudio environment and Python.
The statistics and data produced by National Statistical Offices (NSOs) and other National Statistical System (NSS) agencies do not exist in a vacuum. We can produce the most 'perfect' data in the world, but they are of little value if they are not used. It's therefore essential that we as producers of official statistics engage with our users in order to both understand and respond to their needs.
Learning objectives: By the end of the course, participants will be able to:
- Understand what user engagement is and why it is important for statistics
- Identify who their user and potential users are
- Apply different tools/methods for engaging with users
- Better respond to user needs through effective data storytelling.
This course introduces data visualization as a tool to produce high-quality graphics for monitoring official statistics and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) indicators.
The course is not based, nor does it focus, on any software. However, some popular software will be introduced and used in the course (Excel, QGIS, R/Rstudio, R Shiny, Google Sheets) as well as references to online tools.
