Abstract: This course is concerned with practical methods of quantitative analysis and the ways of presenting quantitative results using anthropological data. We will focus on how to analyze your data and on how to present your results using computer-aided graphics. We will discuss what techniques work with different kinds of data sets and different research designs. We will also explore how to present the results of those analyses in black and white for publication and in color for conference presentations. Finally we will discuss how to evaluate quantitative techniques used in recent anthropological publications. There will be regular short assignments (see the schedule below). There are 12 assignments and I will drop the lowest one. You will also work on a small project using your own data or data that will be similar to the data you plan to collect. Use several of the methods discussed in the course and describe your results in a short paper (8-10 pages). During the three classes, you will briefly (10-15 minutes) present your analysis to the class for discussion. Text
