QSS (Quantitative Social Science) Build Status

Supplementary Materials for the book, Quantitative Social Science: An Introduction, published by Princeton University Press in 2017. It is also available for purchase at vendors like Amazon.

The book is based on the teaching philosophy summarized in the talk I gave at the Nuffield Foundation's Q-Step Programme in 2015: slides

This repository contains the data sets and R scripts for all of the chapters:

  1. Introduction
  2. Causality
  3. Measurement
  4. Prediction
  5. Discovery
  6. Probability
  7. Uncertainty

In addition, the repository contains:

  1. Errata
  2. Sample course syllabi

R package qss

The data and code in this repository are also available as an R package qss (see the package website). The code is in the form of vignettes. To install this package, use the following command:

install.packages("devtools") # if you have not installed devtools package already
devtools::install_github("kosukeimai/qss-package", build_vignettes = TRUE)

Once the qss package is installed, you can use the data and vignette:

data(package = "qss") # list all data sets
data(elections) # load the elections data
vignette(package = "qss") # list all vignettes
browseVignette("qss") # list vignettes and R code
vignette("causality", package = "qss") # show the vignette for the Causality chapter
