- This instructor for this section is Brett Presnell. His office
hours and other contact information are given on Presnell's home
- Here is the syllabus for the course
(in PDF format).
- A calendar showing what we've done
Most of the computations for this class will be demonstrated using
SAS. SAS is available on the PCs in the CIRCA labs (such as CSE 211).
The CIRCA "SAS for
Windows" handout will get you started (hard copies are also
available from CIRCA). You can also get SAS for your home PC through
the new Student
Home-Use Program (current price is $35 for one academic year).
R and Rweb
Many (all?) of the computations for this class can be done using "R",
which is a free/open implementation of the "S" statistical programming
language. You can install R on your
PC or use the web-based version Rweb. Whenever time permits I
will make available R programs (scripts) for the various examples done
in class and in the text.
- Some data sources:
- General Social
Survey (15 March 1999 release).
- SDA: Survey
Documentation and Analysis: Click on SDA Archive to
see some of the available survey data sources.
The General Social Survey is also available here.
The Multi-Investigator Survey might yield some interesting
information (how do things like order or wording of
questions effect response?).
