PBPL 10 Statistical Analysis for Public Policy

Public policy analysis involves quantitative methods and statistical methods in particular. PBPL 10 introduces students to basic statistical techniques and to the statistical software package, STATA, with a heavy emphasis on application, from the initial stages of data exploration to presentation of results. Coursework will involve “real world” policies and problems and will utilize existing datasets from the public policy sphere. The course will also consider research design and the ethics of quantitative policy research.  Because of the large overlap in material covered, no student may receive credit for more than one of the courses PBPL 10, ECON 10, GOVT 10, MATH 10, PSYC 10, QSS 15, or SOCY 10 except by special petition.

QDS

The Timetable of Class Meetings contains the most up-to-date information about a course. It includes not only the meeting time and instructor, but also its official distributive and/or world culture designation. This information supersedes any information you may see elsewhere, to include what may appear in this ORC/Catalog or on a department/program website. Note that course attributes may change term to term therefore those in effect are those (only) during the term in which you enroll in the course.
