The Division of Statistics + Scientific Computation at The University of Texas at Austin will be hosting the University’s fifth annual UT Summer Statistics Institute on the UT Austin campus from May 21 – May 24, 2012. Short courses are offered at all levels including introductory statistics, software, and statistical methods and applications. We are offering a Bayesian Statistics for Social Sciences course, as well as many other courses that would be of interest to the members of your political methodology list.
The three main purposes of the SSI are:
• To provide participants with access to new statistical knowledge and skills
• To give participants hands-on experience with data analysis
• To prepare participants to interpret studies employing statistical methods.
