CCTP-771-01 Statistical Methodology
Fall for 2006-2007
This course is designed to provide students with a solid background in introductory and intermediate level statistical methods. These methods can be used in conjuction with data from a wide range of sources, including surveys, content analyses, economic and business data, aggregate level demographic indicators, and census data, to name but a few. The class will cover basic univariate statistics, bivariate analysis, and multiple regression techniques. Core concepts, such as probability theory and hypothesis testing, will be discussed. A hands-on approach will be employed. Students will work with SPSS, a widely used social scientific statistical package. Problem sets will be assigned to facilitate learning of each statistical technique. The final project for the course will be a data analysis paper on a topic of the students' choice. (CCT students might use this exercise as an opportunity to try out ideas for their thesis projects.) No prior background in statistical methods is required.
