Quantitative Methods - Multivariate Analysis
Autumn 2018, the course will be given as a master's-level course, for more information see here.
This course introduces the most widespread methods of multivariate analysis in social sciences.
Teaching includes lectures and teacher-assisted hands-on exercises with data drawn from social science databases. The course will be examined on the basis of these exercises and assignments including theoretical formulation and interpretation of multivariate models.
Participants are expected to have good knowledge of descriptive statistics – for example by having participated in the second cycle methodology course SIMM31 or SIMM41 – and basic knowledge of inductive statistics (statistical inference) and multiple regression analysis.
