Course objectives: This course is divided into three sets of skills, each with separate objectives. 1. Statistical Analysis: The application of multi-variate techniques to determine underlying social relationships. This will focus on developing a theoretical and practical understanding of the application of regression techniques. 2. Application of Techniques in Practical Situations: Although theoretic understanding of multi-variate techniques is a necessary foundation for knowledgeable use of statistical techniques, practical experience in their application is also important. Students will develop familiarity with statistical software, multi-variate techniques, methods of testing hypotheses and diagnostic methods. 3. Evaluation of Research: Good research is founded on mastery of statistical theory, but requires careful framing of issues, consideration of appropriate measures and specification and interpretation of the results of statistical tests. Students will learn to read statistical articles and evaulate the results of that research.
