This course provides students with a thorough understanding of how quantitative methods can be used in the study of politics. The format will be a mix of lectures (12 hrs) and exercises (6 hrs) in STATA. The lectures will cover the theory whereas the exercises will focus on verification of different estimators, and we will in particular problematize the interpretation of statistical significance.
