The quantitative part of the course will also examine potential data sources for quantitative research projects, and provide an overview different quantitative analysis techniques: machine learning (prediction), estimation of marginal effects (various regression-based techniques), and data description (e.g. visualization, factor analysis, unsupervised learning).
