Summer Program in Quantitative Methods of Social Research
Welcome to the 2014 program!
We welcome you to the ICPSR Summer Program in Quantitative Methods of Social Research.
Last year, we celebrated a half century as a leading program in training in social science research methodologies and technologies. In 2014, we continue to serve diverse multidisciplinary and growing international constituencies, and are working to make our program even better known.
One of the Summer Program's outstanding strengths is its supportive and unique social environment. It facilitates participants' exchange of ideas, approaches, and techniques to develop theories and analyses of social science topics. It also advances professional networking.
When the 2014 schedule is finalized, it will list over 90 beginning and advanced courses at our primary location in Ann Arbor and several "off-site" institutions. They will build upon our foundational core of quantitative methods and substantive topics in a variety of workshops, classes, and special Blalock lectures.
We appreciate your interest in the ICPSR Summer Program, and I hope to see you as a participant this summer.

ISR-Rackham Summer Training Awards
The U-M's Rackham Graduate School has provided the Institute for Social Research (ISR) with funds to encourage and support U-M graduate students in the social sciences to attend ISR summer programs, including the ICPSR Summer Program.
These competitive grants cover 2/3 of the cost to attend either or both four-week sessions of the ICPSR Summer Program, as long as the student's department agrees to cover the remaining 1/3 cost.

For more information, please refer to the 2014 application form (PDF 108K).
We've just added a 5-day statistical workshop to our 2014 Summer Program!
"Introduction to Spatial Regression Analysis" will be held in Boulder, CO from August 4-8. Taught by University of Colorado-Boulder professor Elisabeth Root, this workshop will introduce the spatial-analytic framework and explore related issues that arise when analyzing spatial data.
We'll post more info about this course to our 2014 Schedule in the coming days!
Registration is now open for the 2014 ICPSR Summer Program. Check out the 2014 Schedule and the course descriptions for further information about this year's Program content, including instructors, dates, and daily schedules. Then visit our online portal to sign up for courses.
We look forward to seeing you this summer!
