DEVM 511 - Quantitative Research Methods
This course serves as an introduction to the art and science of interpreting quantitative information about political and social phenomena. Although understanding statistics requires the use of some mathematics, in this case only advanced algebra will be needed to successfully complete the course. There will be an introduction to the techniques of data gathering and the development of computer-readable datasets. Assignments will involve small data analysis projects using statistical packages. The reading list will be supplemented with a few articles illustrating the application of various methods to the analysis of political questions.
