This course teaches you how to run multivariate regression models (models with several variables) allowing you to answer a wide variety of sociological questions. For example, you will learn how to measure whether female graduates earn more than male graduates on average, and will learn how to determine (statistically) which personal attributes are most predictive of happiness and or success. This course is based on a weekly one hour lecture and a one hour workshop. The module builds on the multiple regression techniques introduced in Analysing data: qualitative and quantitative research methods
, and provides you with a basic introduction to statistical modelling.
