This half-semester course will focus on the analysis of complex survey data. The focus will be on using secondary data of this type. Using Stata, we will discuss how regression analysis differs when using complex survey data as well as data-cleaning procedures, including trimming, variable transformations, and dealing with missing data. Students will produce a short memo, using real survey data, to analyze a simple research question.
