Registration Now Open for 2024 ICPSR Summer Program in Quantitative Methods


ICPSR (Inter-university Consortium for Political and Social Research), a consortium comprising more than 800 academic institutions and research organizations, has opened registration for its 2024 Summer Program in Quantitative Methods. The program features over 90 courses covering a wide range of topics and techniques, including introductory statistics, regression analysis, advanced multilevel models, Bayesian analysis and machine learning. Both online and in-person classes are available. Online classes can be attended synchronously via Zoom or via lecture recordings. In-person workshops are hosted on the University of Michigan campus in Ann Arbor.

The Summer Program offers two different class types:

Topical Workshops – These workshops provide instruction in a specific statistical technique or research method over the period of a week or two, with either 20 or 40 classroom hours. The first topical workshop is on May 13 and the final one begins August 15.

General Sessions – These comprehensive four-week sessions include four courses of intensive instruction in specific quantitative methods and statistical techniques, along with unlimited lectures during the first week of the session. The first session runs from June 10 to July 5, 2024. The second session runs from July 8 to August 2, 2024.
