Our goal is to develop abstract, portable standards for data worth collecting along with a practical sense of how one might go about collecting those data. The breadth of topics is intended to help students of Political Science and related fields in social science to advance their own inquiry. The written work you do in this class will advance a research design that might contribute to your personal research program, either as part of your dissertation or a significant side project that could lead to publication if executed. Topics covered will include the experimental design, near and natural experiments, measurement, sampling, questionnaire design, field research and content analysis.
