The two primary goals of this workshop are:
(1) to present an example of working with data that uses one of the files available through the Data Liberation Initiative (DLI); and
(2) to provide a hands-on computing exercise that introduces some basic approaches to quantitative analysis.
The study chosen for this example is the National Survey of Literacy Skills Used in Daily Activities conducted in 1989. In completing this example, three general strategies for performing quantitative analysis will be discussed.
