Welcome to the 2015 ICPSR Summer Program!

Summer Program in Quantitative Methods of Social Research

The ICPSR Summer Program is recognized throughout the world as a leading program providing basic and advanced training in a wide range of methodologies and technologies for social science research. Our courses emphasize the integration of methodological strategies with the theoretical and practical concerns that arise in research on substantive social issues. The ICPSR Summer Program strives to provide a unique and supportive social environment which facilitates professional networking and encourages the exchange of ideas about the theory and practice of social science research.

Founded in 1963 as a limited effort, the ICPSR Summer Program has expanded dramatically in size and scope. Today, it serves a large and diverse international constituency. The 2014 Program offered 97 workshops and lectures in seven locations across the United States and Canada. Over 1,000 participants took courses in the ICPSR Summer Program this past year. They came from 360 institutions in 38 nations, and they represent at least 25 academic disciplines.
