Investigating the Social World: Quantitative Research



The emphasis of this course is on how to analyze social data. Emphasis in this course will be on methods of statistical analysis that are appropriate when working with relatively large sociological datasets. This course sets out to help you develop your skills in both interpreting and producing social research. My goal is to help you to become a more informed and critical reader of statistical evidence, whether it be in reading academic work or journalistic accounts of social research.
