Description: Social surveys are using new procedures, sampling methods, and technologies to address current 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, survey research ethics and the use of social media for surveys. The course will provide many practical applications and is targeted to students who want to design and conduct their own surveys.
