QICSS Workshops

The QICSS organizes hands-on intensive training workshops on specific methodological problems related to the analysis of complex data, specific methods and / or data from particular surveys. These one- to three-day workshops cover a range of topics, from statistical methods and software to the use of data from specific surveys. Close to 350 participants (half of which were students or trainees) have attended these workshops.

Aiming to play the role of facilitator rather than replicating activities offered by other associations, the QICSS also links up with partners to organize Schools or workshops in social statistics, lending them their expertise and infrastructure.
