Module description

Note: Students cannot take both 5SSPP241 Statistics for Political Science II and 5SSPP213 Econometrics

This 2nd year UG module is designed to provide students with particular analytical tools to better understand the problems and questions studied in political sciences. The main goal is to train students in the use of regression analysis, the dominant quantitative technique used in empirical studies. Students will learn how to conduct quantitative research using regression analysis. The module combines theoretical lectures with practical sessions in the pc-lab where students will enhance their existing knowledge of STATA.
