Class Description:
Basic statistical tools for empirical analysis of public policy alternatives. Frequency distributions, descriptive statistics, elementary probability/probability distributions, statistical inference. Estimation/hypothesis testing. Cross-tabulation/chi-square distribution. Correlation. Simple/multiple regression analysis. Sampling and survey
Learning Objectives:
This course is intended to provide familiarity with statistical terminology used on an everyday basis in the policy arena as well as the popular media; to provide an understanding of the methodology behind the numbers; to enable students to use basic statistical techniques in the course of research or policy analysis; to teach students to critically interpret statistical results; and to encourage students to think about implicit assumptions about numbers that affect our work, public policy decisions, and our lives. In particular, I want students to think about how statistics can be used to shed light on (or hide) and enhance positions of power and privilege in societies.
