Course Syllabus

Abstract

The course covers different types of regression modeling, including further insights into linear regression and diagnostics for linear models, binary, multinomial, ordered regression, models for count data, along with causal inference methods. Students are assumed to have basic knowledge of statistics and be familiar with several conventional statistical methods, most importantly linear regression, and with the R programming environment.
Learning Objectives

Learning Objectives

  • The main objective of the course is to give an introduction to a variety of extensions of linear regression analysis widely used in modern social sciences, as well as implementations of the respective methods in R, a popular, free programming language for statistical computing. By the end of the course, students will be able to choose relevant methods of analysis, implement necessary techniques, and interpret the results of modeling.
Expected Learning Outcomes

Expected Learning Outcomes

  • Able to choose statistical methods appropriate to their data and substantive research problem
  • Able to design a quantitative social study
  • Able to read and understand most academic social sciences articles that use quantitative approach
  • Able to use R programming language for complex statistical computations
