POLISCI 151: Tackling Big Questions Using Social Data Science (ECON 151)

Big data can help us provide answers to fundamental social questions, from poverty and social mobility, to climate change, migration, and the spread of disease. But making sense of data requires more than just statistical techniques: it calls for models of how humans behave and interact with each other. Social data science combines the analysis of big data with social science theory. We will take a project-oriented, many models-many methods approach: for each topic or question of general interest, we will first introduce simple formal models from across the social sciences to guide our thinking. Then we will collect and analyze the relevant data, applying data science techniques such as machine learning and causal inference. Prerequisites are Econ 102A and 102B.
