PUBLIC OPINION DATA ANALYSIS
This course analyzes in theoretical and empirical terms the phenomenon of public opinion and how it manifests itself in contemporary democracies. In the first part the process of public opinion formation and related theories are analyzed and discussed. In addition, the methodological advantages and limits of public opinion measurements are highlighted. The second part contains an empirical emphasis. Therefore, through the analysis of several existing surveys, methodological issues related to surveys are explored and demonstrated with the support of the Stata software.
Familiarity with Stata is desired but not mandatory, so this course works better if taken jointly with Introduction to Stata.
