Greetings from the ICPSR Summer Program in Quantitative Methods of Social Research!
About Us The ICPSR Summer Program is internationally recognized as the preeminent resource for basic and advanced training in social science research methodologies and technologies.
We offer courses in research design, quantitative reasoning, statistical methods, and data processing. Our goal is to integrate methods of quantitative analysis within a broader context of substantive social research. Additionally, our unique and supportive social environment facilitates the sharing of ideas, approaches, techniques, and fun!
