INTLPOL 301B: Research Methods and Policy Applications II

We will build on the basic knowledge of statistical methods from the previous quarter to further develop fundamentals for the design, implementation and interpretation of policy-relevant research. We will compare common observational and experimental research methodologies, with significant attention devoted to explaining the details of research design and associated assumptions. Topics include causal inference, the average treatment effect, sample size selection, partial compliance, selection bias and methods for accounting for it. Development of critical reading skills is emphasized through regular discussions of academic journal articles and popular media accounts of research. Practical aspects of undertaking research will also be covered, including efficient and cost-effective data collection, field team supervision, budget management, and ethical considerations. Once again, we will make extensive use of R software.
