Description

In this course, we will study the basic concepts and techniques of quantitative data analysis. Our primary focus will be upon understanding the application and interpretation of a variety of fundamental statistical techniques and may include learning some statistical computing skills using Excel. Even though there will be an emphasis on statistical techniques as they are used by social scientists, the course will provide the foundation needed for statistical analysis in many fields. By the end of the course, you will have learned the tools to be an informed consumer of social science quantitative research with the ability to evaluate many of the research claims made in academic work and public discourse.
