SURV722

Onsite
Fall 2018

 

 

Description: 

This course treats research designs from which causal inferences are sought. Classical experimental design will be contrasted with quasi-experiments, evaluation studies, and other observational study designs. Emphasis will be placed on how design features impact the nature of statistical estimation and inference from the designs. Issues of blocking, balancing, repeated measures, control strategies, etc., will be treated.
