SSDAN AND ICPSR HOST WEBINAR ON TEACHING WITH CONTINGENCY TABLES

The Social Science Data Analysis Network, in partnership with the Inter-university Consortium for Political and Social Research (ICPSR), will host a webinar on June 14, 2012 at 2PM EDT, presented by SSDAN Director Bill Frey.

This webinar, part of an ongoing series, will focus on "Teaching with Contingency Tables" in substantive undergraduate sociology courses using the DataCounts! web site and WebCHIP software. If you have ever wondered how to easily teach students how to interpret and manipulate social data such as that from the U.S. Census, then you are encouraged to participate!

Bill Frey will lead attendees through several ways to introduce students to the Census Bureau's American Community Survey data with our WebCHIP software. Participants will be shown how students can easily learn to create cross tabulations, charts and graphs using specialized SSDAN datasets that have been repackaged for educational use. After the initial instruction, SSDAN team members will be on hand to provide individual attention to participants as they complete an exercise and navigate their way through WebCHIP.
