WEEK 8

Monday, 10/8/18 through Wednesday, 10/10/18

Fall Break is Thursday, 10/11 through Friday 10/12; no classes or office hours.

Welcome to Week 8! This week we’re looking at applied survey research, discussing how we take samples from a population, and how our results are affected when we have biased samples. Aside from sampling bias, we also discuss response bias and nonresponse bias. The reading assignment from Freedman et. al discusses important principles for conducting good survey research, with lots of examples.
