This course provides a simple introduction to problems that social scientists are working on (e.g. racial disparities, inequality and climate change) in a manner that does not require any prior background in Economics or Statistics.
Instead of starting out with abstract methods (such as supply and demand in canonical Economics courses), this course goes directly into the problems to analyse them. The course teaches methods such as experimental analysis using relevant example problems. These have become relevant and feasible due to the more recent availability of Big Data.
There is additional material available on the course website.
