授業概要 The purpose of this course is to help political science and economics majors build essential skills for understanding and conducting empirical research. Topics to be covered include: basic research and data collection practices, how to analyze data, how to test research questions, bivariate and multivariate regression models. The course combines lectures by the instructor and in-class data analysis using a statistical software. Basic knowledge of statistics will be helpful, but not required.
