Just Plain Data Analysis teaches students statistical literacy skills used to evaluate and construct arguments about public affairs grounded in numerical evidence. These practical skills involve finding, presenting, and interpreting commonly used social indicators, the quantitative measures of the performance of societies' institutions. These are skills and expertise that are not often covered in qualitative or quantitative research methods and statistics texts and courses but that are directly applicable to students' subsequent coursework and in a wide variety of future careers.
