Performing an appropriate statistical analysis on data from animal welfare research is often a challenge. Issues of controversy include, for example, the definition of the correct experimental unit, the level of (in)dependency of observational data – in particular when groups of animals are involved, and the avoidance of pseudoreplication.
The workshop aims to discuss and exchange views on these issues, and to provide useful tools and solutions, based on actual experiments.
The workshop will be organised by two senior statisticians involved in animal welfare research.
Workshop organisers: dr. Bas Engel – Wageningen University and dr. Bart Ampe – ILVO Gent
