Rachel’s Corner: Quantitative Training

Looking to learn a new quantitative technique but can’t stomach the idea of taking one more class? Or are you just looking to get a little quantitative refresher? Well, do I have a recommendation for you.

Paul Allison, sociology professor and stats extraordinaire, conducts two-day trainings on a variety of quantitative topics. I took a refresher course a few years ago from him and loved it. Best training I’ve ever been to. I loved the structure of training (very applied) and he didn’t speak in formulas.

Just in case you’re wondering, I get nothing out of this endorsement; I’m just passing along a recommendation.

The fall schedule of trainings can be found here.
