Archived Webinar: Simple Statistical Tools for Performance Auditing
An ALGA Webinar held January 12, 2016
This webinar will present simple, yet powerful statistical tools you can use to understand relationships between data sets in performance audits. It will explain how and why to use Pearson and Spearman Correlations, T-Tests (for comparing differences between two groups), and Chi-Square Tests (for comparing differences between more than two groups). The speaker will demonstrate how to conduct all of these tests in Excel—no specialized software needed—and provide examples from audits conducted by the Denver Auditor’s Office on police response times, police time keeping, airport concession revenues, and legal case work management.
