Fall 2012 Workshop
The Workshop on Quantitative Research Methods in Education, Health, and Social Sciences serves as an important venue on The University of Chicago campus for building an intellectual community of colleagues who share methodological interests.
Workshop participants meet biweekly to discuss working papers and brainstorm solutions to methodological problems encountered in ongoing research. Participants include faculty members, researchers, and students from the Social Sciences Division, Health Studies, Statistics, Public Policy, the National Opinion Research Center, the Consortium for Chicago School Research, and colleagues from the University of Illinois in Chicago.
This workshop is sponsored by the Committee on Education, the Center for Health Statistics, and the National Opinion Research Center.
In Fall 2012, the Workshop meets every other Friday from 11 AM-12:30 PM in NORC room 344. Below is the confirmed schedule:
