As life becomes more and more data-driven, the skill of data simulation is no longer a bonus but rather a compulsory skill. But most people who engage in data analysis have not learned and are unfamiliar with the rules of presenting quantitative data to others. An efficient presentation of quantitative date is done according to the principles of data simulation – a scientific field which is based on studies in psychology, linguistics and visual communications. Without these skills, recommendations are rejected, ideas discounted, stories don’t make it to the audience and projects remain hidden away in drawers. Perfecting the skills of data simulation saves much confusion and frustration, up to 50 (!) times money and time, and gives a substantial advantage in the world of research.
Participants in the workshop will learn the basic principles of data simulation, will understand the different types of quantitative connections and the way to simulate them, will be given rules to design tables and graphs and will learn about visual components and the correct way to use them.
