Qualitative Data Repository


Qualitative Data Repository (QDR) selects, ingests, curates, archives, manages, durably preserves and provides access to digital data used in qualitative and multi-method social inquiry.

The QDR offers institutional membership, which includes a broad range of services to help depositors render their data findable, accessible, interoperable and reusable (FAIR).

Statistical Thinking and Applications


The purpose of this course is to facilitate students’ understanding of basic statistical concepts and operations in the quantitative research tradition. A number of foundational issues will be addressed, including science and causality; constructs, variables, and research questions; measurement concepts; research design and research validity; descriptive statistics; and inferential statistics.

Logic of Political Inquiry


The goal of this class is to introduce students to how empirical political scientists study, think, and research. Students will discuss the process of theory building, hypothesis testing, and how political scientists across subfields ask and answer substantive questions. Students will study both qualitative and quantitative methods but focus on how these methods help test causality.

Surveys and Experiments


Students will explore both technical aspects of surveys and experiments – what they can measure, how they can measure it, and what types of questions they allow political scientists to answer – as well as read substantive social science that utilizes these methods. Students will also all become practitioners this semester by completing a research project that uses either survey or experimental data and writing it up in the style of an article in the Journal of Experimental Political Science.

Center for Qualitative and Multi-Method Inquiry is thankful to the Moynihan Institute of Global Affairs, which provides space and operational support for the Center.
