For example, the website features 16 exercises for an introductory statistics course that covers topics from descriptive statistics through regression. Additionally, SSRIC offers free workshops on social science databases, including SPSS, Survey Documentation and Analysis (SDA), and teaching data analysis in a classroom setting.
