Data Analysis for Social Scientists

Esther Duflo, Sara Fisher Ellison, MITx

Learn methods for harnessing and analyzing data to answer questions of cultural, social, economic, and policy interest.

This course is now part of two independent MITx MicroMasters programs. For both MicroMasters programs, learners will need to first enroll in and pass this course. However, each program will then require different final assessments for a course certificate toward the full MicroMasters credential:

1.MicroMasters in Data, Economics, and Development Policy (DEDP).

To pursue the DEDP MicroMasters credential, pass this course, create aMicroMasters in DEDP profile, and pass an additional in-person proctored exam.

To learn more about the DEDP program and how it integrates with MIT’s new blended Master’s degree, please visithttps://micromasters.mit.edu/dedp/.

The DEDP MicroMasters is part of edX’s free Online Campus program. Participating university affiliates can take DEDP MicroMasters courses free if you register before June 30th. If you are from a university participating in this edX opportunity,click here to redeem your coupon.

The DEDP MicroMasters is also part of the Workforce Recovery Acceleration Program. To apply for this program please click here.

2.MicroMasters in Statistics and Data Science (SDS).
To pursue the SDS MicoMasters credential, pass this course, and enroll in and pass the final assessment at14.310Fx Data Analysis in Social Sciences-Assessment on EdX.

This statistics and data analysis course will introduce you to the essential notions of probability and statistics. We will cover techniques in modern data analysis: estimation, regression and econometrics, prediction, experimental design, randomized control trials (and A/B testing), machine learning, and data visualization. We will illustrate these concepts with applications drawn from real world examples and frontier research. Finally, we will provide instruction for how to use the statistical package R and opportunities for students to perform self-directed empirical analyses.

This course is designed for anyone who wants to learn how to work with data and communicate data-driven findings effectively.

Course Previews:

Our course previews are meant to give prospective learners the opportunity to get a taste of the content and exercises that will be covered in each course. If you are new to these subjects, or eager to refresh your memory, each course preview also includes some available resources. These resources may also be useful to refer to over the course of the semester.

A score of 60% or above in the course previews indicates that you are ready to take the course, while a score below 60% indicates that you should further review the concepts covered before beginning the course.
