Social surveys are using new procedures, sampling methods, and
technologies to address contemporary social and technological changes.
To prepare students to develop effective surveys, S651 focuses on the
current standards for survey design and procedures. Some topics
covered in the course are Internet surveys, question construction and
questionnaire design, new types of survey sampling, including those
used to compensate for survey nonresponse, and survey research ethics.
The course will provide many practical applications and is targeted to
students who want to design and conduct their own surveys.
