This graduate seminar explores ideas and methods from several broad areas of modern statistics, focusing on how they have been used to study sociological questions. We will learn about these methods and critically evaluate how they have been deployed in the modern research literature to examine topics such as social mobility, health disparities, and gender and racial stratification. The course will provide background knowledge to enable students to later pursue more detailed study of these topics and methods. The goals of the course are to improve students' ability to critically evaluate quantitative work and to design empirical research projects of their own.
