Principal aims

The main aims of this module are (i) to give students an understanding of, and practical experience of applying, various key multivariate analysis approaches relevant to the analysis of sociologically-relevant data from social surveys, and (ii) to give them experience of carrying out a secondary-analysis based piece of work on a substantive topic in that context.

Principal learning outcomes

Students will develop their understanding of a number of statistical techniques that can be used within multivariate analyses, and gain practical experience of a range of issues involved in carrying out, and writing up, a secondary analysis of data from a large social survey.

Timetabled teaching activities
