Regression Analysis for Political Science II
Course Number: 84-702
By the end of RAPS II, students will be able to evaluate critically most studies that use statistical tools in political science research, and be able to design and carry out original research applying quantitative methods. Among other topics, we will examine the violations of regression assumptions (e.g., multicollinearity, heteroscedasticity, autocorrelation, measurement error, and specification error), interaction terms, analysis of residuals, maximum likelihood estimation procedures, models with ordinal dependent variables, and non-linear models. There will be an emphasis in using graphical tools to aid interpretation and presentation of results.
