Statistical Analysis – Planning, Conducting, Documenting and Reporting

Use of statistics has been part of the FDA’s guidance and regulations for many years. Recent uses include Quality by Design, Process Analytical Technology and the 2011 FDA Process Validation Guidance. Even with this long history, the use of statistics seems to be a source of uncertainty and anxiety for many.

This webinar addresses how to effectively use statistical thinking and methods by providing a process for planning, conducting, documenting and reporting statistical analyses. This “process” includes: the critical steps involved, how to use visualization to analyze and report results, the most frequently used statistical tools and the most useful graphical and data visualization methods. Roadmaps are provided, critical steps are identified and illustrative examples and case studies are provided.
