Overview Overview

Quantitative analysis is one of a wide menu of approaches to social science research. This module introduces you to the fundamentals of quantitative data analysis, with a particular emphasis on visualisation, interpretation, and critical appraisal. Working with real-world data, and with few assumptions of prior knowledge, it will equip students with a range of techniques to perform independent analyses, present your results intuitively, and ultimately design your own theoretically informed studies. The course will involve working with cross-sectional, longitudinal, and a mix of micro and macro-data, enabling study patterns of social change over space and time, whilst gently exposing students to the practice of multivariate data analysis.
