Advanced Data Analysis

The advanced data analysis course was designed to provide students with the opportunity to expand upon the skills developed in the introductory course (IPSG 8504), and introduce new skills that address a greater range of analytic needs. This is a project-based, applied course. Class discussions will include both how and why to use these tools, with a strong emphasis on policy applications. Among others, the course covers modules on Factor Analysis, Non-Linear Regression, Spatial Analysis and Time Series Analysis, and its design has a strong emphasis on policy applications. Multiple data sets will be used, but students are encouraged to use their own data and background knowledge.
