**Note:** The ICPSR Summer Program in Quantitative Methods of Social Research makes every effort to
provide an up-to-date course schedule, as well as fully accurate course descriptions. Occasionally, however, unforeseen
circumstances may require changes in course content,
instructors, timing, or location. Fortunately, such events are very
rare. But when they do occur, we reserve the right to make any
changes that are necessary to maintain the Program. We will post
corrected information to the Summer Program website and inform
participants who are affected by such changes as quickly as possible.
