Discussion: Weighting Secondary Data
Through your biostatistics courses, you have had the opportunity to learn several different basic statistical procedures to analyze data. In some cases, the available data could be manipulated in order to allow the researcher to compute different analyses.
With those basic concepts in mind, for this Discussion, you will revisit weighting and its importance and applications in the analysis of secondary data.
- Review this weeks Learning Resources.
By Day 3
Post a 2- to 3-paragraph analysis of weighting in secondary data that includes the following:
- An explanation about the importance of weighting in secondary data
- Two examples of how you might use weighting. (For each example, provide a rationale for the weighting.)
Support your post with the Learning Resources and current literature. Use APA formatting for your Discussion and to cite your resources.
