Montse Martínez, IRBLleida Biostatistics Unit

  • Characteristics: the course will deal with the importance of having a reliable database and the impact of missing data, depending on the different types of data, on the assessment of the external validity of our data. The course will have a very practical content that will be structured in a first part of design and creation of a good database, either in Excel, Jamovi or REDCap (the most recommended and accessible by IRBLleida researchers), and a second part of debugging and initial validation, and cleaning or correction if necessary, which is always efficient to do as a previous step in any statistical analysis. The course will also introduce the FAIR principles of data in the context of open science and aspects related to data documentation.
