Primary Instructor:

This graduate-level course takes a broad look at quantitative data collection and analysis techniques used across the social sciences. Each week, we explore a specific technique (or a related set of techniques) to understand how the technique is used in practice, the assumptions that underlie its use, and the types of questions for which the technique may yield insights. This class explores methods including missing data imputation, network analysis, multilevel modeling, and non-parametric bootstrapping. Students will be prepared to evaluate research using these and other techniques and will gain an understanding of which tools would be appropriate for their own research.
