[SOCI 205] Social Statistics
This course focuses on the “doing” of quantitative social science analysis. Students are required to complete a series of assignments designed to provide a working familiarity with data analysis and Statistical Package for the Social Sciences [SPSS], a statistical software package widely used in business and the social sciences. The overall goal of the course is to make students better consumers of quantitative social science results by giving them a better understanding of how “the numbers” are produced. Topics include: cross-tabulation tables, Chi-square, t-tests, ANOVA, bivariate regression, and multiple regression.Edit my profile
