PAD 5880. Advanced Quantitative Analysis in Administration (3 credits)


This course is designed to provide the advanced student of public affairs with a firm foundation in, and an ability to apply, some of the most commonly used statistical techniques, with emphasis on actual data analysis. Following a very brief refresher on basic statistics, part one of the course will focus on the foundations of bivariate linear regression analysis. The second part will concentrate on multivariate linear regression analysis, including analysis of the assumptions of these linear models and where they are most likely to fail. Parts one and two of the class will take up the bulk of the semester and will provide the student with one of the most important and widely used statistical tools for empirical social and policy research. The third part will concentrate on logit regression models and factor analysis. Upon successful completion of the course, the student will be conversant with-and capable of using-some of the most widely used advanced statistical techniques.
