description:
This study contains a set of materials for the teaching of intermediate statistics, developed by the Consortium as part of its curricular development project. This project grew out of the ICPSR Training Program, and the underlying pedagogical perspectives matured in this program. ICPSR's experience strongly underscored the importance of moving the student of quantitative methods out of the passive mode and actively involving the student in the learning process. The materials in this study were created to present students with a sequence of intellectual tasks designed to facilitate their understanding of the logic and algorithms of various techniques. The data consist of two subsets, File 1, derived from the CIVIC CULTURE STUDY, 1959-1960 (ICPSR 7201) and File 2, extracted from the AMERICAN NATIONAL ELECTION STUDY, 1968 (ICPSR 7281). The accompanying material consists of a book, APPLIED STATISTICS, by Gudmund R. Iversen, with two substantive examples by Helmut Norpoth and a chapter co-authored by Lawrence H. Boyd. Covered topics are regression analysis (simple and multiple, dummy variables, multicollinearity, analysis of residuals), analysis of variance and covariance, contingency tables, Bayesian statistics, and multilevel analysis. A revised manuscript exists in mimeographed form. The computer output and answers to the questions included in the book are also available. Similar teaching materials are also being developed in the areas of causal inference, dimensional analysis, and dynamic analysis.
