Applied logistic regression

This course provides hands-on-experience to logistic regression analysis. Logistic regression analysis is a foundational regression technique for public policy students. To give some typical examples that can be examined with this technique: Who votes for populist parties? What determines people’s opinion on public defense? Who agrees to more government spending on pensions?

The course is designed for students who have taken Statistics I and who follow the policy analysis track. However, MIA Students and MPP students with specialisation in M&O are welcome. The course is very suitable for students who are searching for data for their MA-projects. The course leaves room to explore the potential of different data sets and to employ the data to answer substantial policy-relevant research questions.

This course is for 2nd year MIA and MPP students only.
