The SMI (Sheffield Methods Institute) in collaboration with the ESRC White Rose DTP is delighted to invite you to an Advanced Quantitative Methods Taster Event, hosted and chaired by Professor Gwilym Pryce.

The aim of this event is to provide an introduction to a range of advanced quantitative methods and analytical techniques that are commonly used in social science.  It will give participants the opportunity to identify methods relevant to their own research.

The main event is likely to include lively introductions to the following methods:

  • Cluster Methods
  • Structural Equation Modelling
  • Multi-level Modelling
  • Spatial Analysis
  • Social Network Analysis
  • Quantitative Analysis of Language
  • Multi Agent Stochastic Simulation
  • Statistical Analysis of Networks using R

A programme for the event will be available shortly and booking will open approximately 6 weeks prior to the event.

Later in the year we will offer opportunities for more in-depth hands-on training in many of the above techniques.
