Quantitative Methods




Third year undergraduate course for criminology students


Fall / Winter

CRI-3318 is a statistics course for criminology students. The first part of the course starts by presenting the central limit theorem and the rationale behind hypothesis testing. Standard T statistics are then covered, along with multiple comparison tests of means, and nonparametric tests. The second part of the course includes bivariate correlations and a discussion on causality versus correlation. More advanced statistical techniques are then presented, including linear, logistic regressions and factor analysis. Every course has a theoretical and a practical angle. Students need to successfully conduct each analysis presented, using the R statistical software and the RMarkdown provided by the professor.
