Semester: 

This camp will prepare students for the POL 572 and other quantitative analysis courses offered in the department. Although the participation in this camp is completely voluntary, the materials covered in this camp are a pre-requisite for POL 572. Students will learn the basics of statistical programming using the open-source computing environment called R. In recent years, R has become increasingly popular among applied researchers and methodologists. Using data from published journal articles, students will learn how to manipulate data, create graphs and tables, and conduct basic Read more about Politics Statistical Programming Camp 2013
