Class Description:
Quantitative skills and mathematical thinking are crucial for your future career success. In PA 5031, we will explore the nature of basic statistics for social sciences as a core mathematical body of knowledge with its own logic, as a quantitative way of thinking, and as a powerful tool for understanding and describing social and political phenomena. Quantitative skills and mathematical thinking are also very challenging for students. In PA 5031, we will conquer mathematical barriers together in following ways: (1) building up confidence of learning mathematics; (2) treating math/formulas as a new "foreign" language; (3)
working on examples with increasing difficulty in a step-by-step manner.


As an entry-level quantitative analysis course for master students, PA 5031 covers statistical foundations and computation skills that are designed to prepare students for their future learning at the Humphrey School. More in details, PA 5031 emphasizes basic statistical descriptions and inferences of survey data in a ***learning-by-doing style***. First, lectures of this course expose students to mathematic knowledge of statistical methods with rich and diverse examples of social and political issues and cover following topics (1) numerical data description with frequency table, central tendencies, and dispersions; (2) graphical data presentation; (3) basics on probability theory and statistical inference; (4)
bivariate association and correlation; (5) linear regression. Next, laboratory sessions co-taught by our two TAs will introduce you basic computing and data manipulation techniques using Stata, very popular stat software for empirical analyses in the academia and various industries. In labs, students are expected to apply theoretical knowledge to investigate real survey data (General Social Survey 2012) and complete two assignment packages. In addition to attending lectures and labs, students are expected to read and preview around 30 pages of the text plus PPT slides per week. There will be two random quizzes and two exams. Students will need a scientific calculator for assignments, quizzes, and exams.


Grading:

· Two assignments, 15% each and totally 30%;

· Two exams, 30% each and totally 60%;
