13 May An overview of the 2020 SRC Summer Institute in Survey Research Techniques
Now in its 73rd year, the Survey Research Center’s (SRC) Summer Institute in Survey Research Techniques offers courses and workshops on a wide range of topics on many aspects of survey research, aimed at various skill levels, and in time frames ranging from one day to eight weeks in length. Anyone who is interested in the survey research process can benefit from taking courses in the Summer Institute in Survey Research Techniques.
Some courses require participants to have a quantitative background and/or familiarity with survey research methods, while others are aimed at those who have little or no experience in the field but want to learn basic concepts. Topics include many aspects of survey research including the fundamental principles involved in drawing samples, designing questionnaires, data collection, and design-based analysis of survey data. The SRC Summer Institute is unique in comparison to the ICPSR Summer Program in terms of its focus on the process of research design and data collection (as opposed to analyzing data that have already been collected).
Housed in the Institute for Social Research (ISR) at the University of Michigan, the Summer Institute also makes it possible to take graduate-level courses for credit, through the Michigan Program in Survey Methodology. These courses on applied sampling techniques and analysis of complex sample survey data will be offered in two consecutive four-week sessions, from June 8 through July 3 and from July 6 through July 31. Course and workshop length varies by topic. The application is available now.
In this live webinar, Summer Institute faculty and staff will first provide a brief history of the Summer Institute, and then turn to a discussion of this year’s program, including key offerings, registration details and visitor information.
