Workshops on Social Science Research (WSSR)
Time: 9:00 am - 4:30 pm Event type: Workshops Sponsored by: Department of Political Science
Dynamic models: analyzing policy and public opinion, with Dr. Harold Clarke & Dr. Guy Whitten.
This workshop teaches students how to conduct dynamic analyses of social, economic and political data. The workshop focuses on time series methods for studying public policy interventions and policy outcomes. Beginning with multiple regression analysis, the course considers ARIMA models for policy interventions and forecasting, error correction and VAR models for analyzing dynamic interrelationships in time series data and ARCH models of volatility and risk. These techniques are valuable research tools for academic researchers in the social sciences and analysts in the public and private sectors. The workshop emphasizes practical applications with real data and students will learn how to use the Stata, R and RATS statistical software packages in their research. Students are invited to bring their own data sets to lab sessions.

Dr. David Kosson obtained his PhD from the University of Wisconsin - Madison after completion of an internship at the SUNY Health Sciences Center in Syracuse, New York.

His research interests focus on the emotional, cognitive, and psychophysiological correlates of severe antisocial behavior and psychopathy in adult and adolescent samples.
