Westat can provide training for the WesVar software to give users the information they need to produce survey weights and analyze data collected from complex samples. Training can include a series of lessons that present some of the statistical theory for survey weighting and estimation. Training can also be provided for practical applications of the procedures available in WesVar, including weighting adjustments and replication, tables, regression, and descriptive statistics.
Westat has trainers with years of experience in survey statistics and in teaching WesVar to academic, government, and commercial clients in the United States and around the world. Trainings combine lecture and demonstration with practical, hands-on exercises that students can work through at their own pace.
Variety of Training Sites
Training can be held at Westat’s training facility or at another location. Materials can also be modified to suit an individual organization’s needs. For more information about WesVar training, either at Westat or another location, contact Westat.
