Course Catalog Description:
This course will introduce statistical measures and procedures that are used to describe and analyze quantitative data in sociological research. The topics include (1) frequency and percentage distributions, (2) central tendency and dispersion, (3) probability theory and statistical inference, (4) models of bivariate analysis, and (5) basics of multivariate analysis. Lectures on these topics will be given in class, and lab exercises are designed to help students learn statistical skills and software needed to analyze quantitative data provided in the class. Soc 5811 is intended for new graduate students, undergraduate honors students, and students pursuing the Sociology BS degree. prereq: Credit will not be granted if credit has been received for Soc 3811 (Soc 5811 offered Fall terms only). Undergraduates with a strong math background are encouraged to register for 5811 in lieu of 3811. Soc majors must register A-F. 5811 is a good social statistics foundation course for MA students from other programs.

Class Description:
This is a social statistics course for sociology graduate students and undergraduate honors students. It meets for lectures with SOC3811, but has a separate weekly lab session. It emphasizes describing data and testing hypotheses. Lectures expose students to the theoretical bases of statistical methods and how to use them in social research. Laboratory sessions teach computing skills and data manipulation techniques. Test problems and lab assignments help students to gain knowledge of basic descriptive and inferential statistics, including frequency distributions, means tests, correlation and regression. Many examples are drawn from diverse sociological topics and illustrated with national survey data.
Who Should Take This Class?:
Sociology majors and students from other disciplines.
Learning Objectives:
Acquire knowledge of basic statistical principles and computation methods, applied to real social data. Ability to read and understand articles that analyze social data.

Measurement, theory of probability, bivariate statistics. Multiple regression analyses of sociological data.
Class Description:
This course is designed for the first-year sociology graduate students. After a review of study design, descriptive statistics, and bivariate analysis in the first five weeks, the rest of the class is devoted to regression models and techniques. Grading is based on twelve weekly exercises, a midterm exam, and a term paper reporting a multiple regression analysis of social science data on a topic of student's own choice. Labs are organized to help students with the data analyses required to complete the weekly exercises and the term paper. Each student is to make a short, ungraded oral presentation of his or her term paper outline at the last class meeting of the semester. After taking this course, all students are expected to understand and to be able to evaluate statistical results up to the level of regression models as reported in major sociology journals today, and will be ready to take courses of advanced social statistics.
