Creator: Klass, Gary M.
Publisher: Illinois State University
Description: This article, created by Gary M. Klass of Illinois State University, contains practical information on teaching statistics to a political science class. The author discusses the numerical data that political scientists use in their research. He presents their interpretation of both "political and social indicator data, often called time series data." The data is shown in both tabular, graphical and also multiple regression formats. The presentation wants to focus on statistics which are directly relevant to those used by actual political scientists. Students will "obtain, interpret and present political and social indicator data, skills involving a variety of applications across even 'non-quantitative' fields of political science."
