This fall PSR will offer several workshops targeted to undergraduate students using survey data in their honors theses.
These workshops are geared toward honors thesis authors in the social sciences who are using original survey data in their theses or who plan to conduct analyses of pre-existing data. The workshops will cover different steps of the survey research process, and suggest how to effectively address and discuss potential problems with survey data collection.
