Sociology 510

4 credit hours, offered biennially

This course is the first of a two–term sequence required of all sociology department graduate students. It consists of two weekly class sessions plus a lab–discussion. In the first academic term we cover basic concepts of probability, sampling distributions, confidence intervals, and statistical inference. The lab sessions will be used to discuss problems encountered in the lectures and written assignments and to develop statistical computing skills. [updated: 10/20/2004]
