This course is a required first-year quantitative methods course for JSP students. The goal of this course is to provide students with enough background in applied empirical research so that they can successfully:
--consume and evaluate basic quantitative empirical research in law and social science
--take more advanced quantitative methods courses to further develop their skills.
--begin to conduct their own empirical research
The course focuses on research design and the general concepts that underlie statistical inference. The hope is that students who successfully complete the course will be able to think clearly about a wide range of substantive problems.
Note: this course is a starting point. It is not a substitute for a first-year statistics course. Moreover, it is not possible to cover what the typical empirical researcher should know about statistics in one course. Students who plan to do empirical research should take several additional methodology courses.
