HS 238F — Evaluating Survey Data Using Stata: Questioning Answers

Meets for one-half semester and yields half-course credit.

Exposes students to principles and practices of evaluating survey data. Governments, NGOs, international development organizations, universities, and private researchers collect more and more data through surveys. Data sets cover development topics such as public health, agriculture, environment, education, and economic indicators, so it is vital that practitioners know how to critically examine what is presented. Usually offered every year.
