The second in a series of webinars on integrating quantitative data analysis into substantive undergraduate social science courses is available for viewing.
Hosted by ICPSR and the Social Science Data Analysis Network (SSDAN), the webinar featured Dr. Rongjun Sun, professor of sociology at Cleveland State University. Jones discussed his tools for helping students measure world income and health inequality. He described his procedures for having his students sort income data in Excel, and calculate the mean incomes and infant mortality rates of the 20 richest and 20 poorest countries in the world.
