The course will deliver best practices for survey construction including questionnaire building, question wording, sampling, and basic analysis of survey data. We will deliberate about a topic of interest (immigration, health care, trust in the media, terrorism and national security). We will come to consensus at the beginning of the semester, and then begin to build the public opinion survey in that domain. We will collect the data during the course. We will then test hypothesis and prepare reports which will serve as the final thesis papers in the course.
