Using Qualitative Research to Study Social Justice (Online)

January 19 @ 12:00 pm - 4:00 pm
Online NC United States

This course will address how researchers can use qualitative research to draw attention to underlying mechanisms that define social problems. Once uncovered, deeper understanding of these mechanisms can guide large-scale surveys, direct responses to requests for proposals by private foundations and government agencies, inform policy briefs, and even influence new legislation. In this regard, it is important for qualitative researchers to think beyond simply highlighting problems in order to also develop skills that leverage our work in ways that more…

Introduction to Qualtrics (Online)

February 9 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm
Online NC United States

This is a hands-on introductory workshop. Participants will create a basic survey, add display and skip logic, and use content validation, piped text, and embedded data. We will create a contact list for distributing survey invitations, and overview the elements of Survey Flow. We will create “chained” surveys to collect personal information from participants that is stored separately from survey responses for distributing survey incentives. The course will not cover analysis or reporting.   Participants are encouraged to read the…

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every 2 days that begins at 9:00 am, repeating until February 17, 2021

Online NC United States

This course will be offered via Zoom only. This online two-day (2/15 and 2/17) short course will provide participants with an introductory overview of issues frequently encountered when conducting secondary analyses of survey data collected from samples with complex multi-stage designs (e.g., PSID, NHANES, NHIS, HRS), including design-based inference, software tools, and proper analysis methods. The workshop is not intended for participants looking to design a survey, but rather for participants who have a desire to analyze complex sample survey…

Introduction to Survey Weighting (Online)

March 17 @ 9:00 am - 1:00 pm
Online NC United States

This course will be offered via ZOOM only.   This course is an introduction to the basic concepts for weighting. It begins by discussing the goals of survey weighting – correcting for differential selection probabilities, compensating for non-response and non-coverage and reducing the variance of the estimates. The course covers the process of developing weights for stratified two-stage sampling including computing design weights and methods for nonresponse adjustments and frame coverage error adjustments. Additional topics may include the effect of…
