This course includes basic quantitative methods designed primarily for graduate students in planning and public policy. Quantitative reasoning that entails the collection, analysis, and interpretation of quantitative data is increasingly important in planning and public policy fields. This course is intended to provide students with both a theoretical background of statistical analysis and technical components of statistical analysis using quantitative method tools (e.g., SPSS). This course is organized into four components—lectures, short quiz, homework assignment, and exams. Students are expected to learn quantitative methods and their theoretical concepts and quantitative data analysis and its interpretation using descriptive and inferential statistics.
