This course is designed to acquaint you with major issues in the
design of sociological research, and the collection and analysis of
relevant data.  We will consider general issues in research design 
the role of theory, causal claims, experimental v. non-experimental
strategies, the identification and selection of cases, measurement,
research ethics  as well as issues that pertain to specific data
collection and analysis procedures.  By its nature, this course
provides an overview of several topics rather than in-depth coverage
of a few.
