- Lecture Notes: copies of the transparencies used in class (chapters 1, 2, and 4 were done on the blackboard). Provided in three formats, 1, 2, and 4 slides to a page, for those who wish to conserve paper (pdf files).
- Downloading and using data from the General Social Survey.

- SAS code for examples done in class (and for some of the exercises)
- SAS
Manuals This is a link to nearly a full set of SAS
manuals. You might specifically be interested in the entries for
PROC FREQ ,
PROC GENMOD,
PROC CATMOD, and
PROC LOGISTIC.
Simple "PROCS", like MEANS, SORT, and
UNIVARIATE can be found in the
*SAS Procedures Guide*, while more involved procedures are in the SAS/STAT User's Guide.

- The R page for this course: everything you need to know about R (yeah, right).

- Some data sources:
- General Social Survey (15 March 1999 release).
- SDA: Survey Documentation and Analysis: Click on SDA Archive to see some of the available survey data sources. The General Social Survey is also available here. The Multi-Investigator Survey might yield some interesting information (how do things like order or wording of questions effect response?).

- An Example of Misinterpreted Odds Ratios
