If you just want to finish this thesis rather than "learn statistics", and if your school has a statistics department, you could ask them for help with it. University stats departments often have programs for stats students to help other graduate students with their thesis stats.

As a teacher, I always feel it necessary to point out that there is no such thing as "being dumb", so stop shitting on yourself. The reason you got into university is because you are not, in fact, dumb. Some people need more time, or instruction to grasp certain concepts or materials, but you can definitely get there. In my experience, what actually causes the feeling of dumbness is being expected to perform intermediate level analyses (such as logistic models) without ever having been properly introduced to the prerequisite fundamentals (odds, probabiliies, linear regression and OLS, etc.). Get those in order, and you'll get it

Statistician here - stat is definitely math for dummies! Even the most crazy differential equations in stat theory tend to collapse to either 1 or 0...

Itβs much easier to learn if you really really understand the foundational concepts.

Thank you everyone for the kind and useful comments!! π and no, luckily I'm not doing my masters in statistics π

But then what master's are you doing? What type of maths are you comfortable with? If we don't have your background we can't help you.

Stats is already kind of math for dummies. (I say that mostly /s, although most of the math folks I've known have this view.)

Hire a statistician for your thesis ... Assuming you are not doing masters in statistics yourself !!!

Is this legal π

Do you know linear regression?

Iβm so glad someone else asked this question for me. We can suck in solidarity, best of luck to you β¨
