Advanced Survey Design

This course in ‘advanced survey design’ takes students beyond the introductory courses and discusses the state of the art in both the design and the analysis of modern survey data, with a focus on new types of data. We present new ways to analyse modern surveys, including non-probability survey designs, smartphone data collection, digital trace data and data collected via apps. Course participants must be proficient working with the statistical software package R at the level of at least knowing Tidy and multivariate regression in R.
