The ICPSR Summer Program in Quantitative Methods of Social Research is recognized throughout the world as the preeminent forum for basic and advanced training in the methodologies and technologies of social science research. We serve a diverse multidisciplinary and international constituency. Our general instructional philosophy emphasizes the integration of methodological strategies with the theoretical and practical concerns that arise in research on substantive social issues. The ICPSR Summer Program also creates a unique and supportive social environment that facilitates professional networking and encourages the exchange of ideas about the theory and practice of social science research.
ICPSR has offered educational opportunities through the Summer Program since 1963, when the first cohort of 82 participants arrived in Ann Arbor for intensive training in quantitative methods. The Program has grown mightily since that time. In 2012, ICPSR offered 43 four-week courses and 35 one-week workshops. It welcomed more than 1,000 participants who represented 67 nations, 26 disciplines, and 312 institutions. Program faculty members are recognized leaders in their fields. In 2012, more than 90 instructors from national and international institutions conducted ICPSR courses. Now in its 50th year, the Program continues to provide high-quality instruction and to offer an impressive range of course options.
The Summer Program takes place from early June to late August. In addition to two four-week sets of courses in Ann Arbor, Michigan, ICPSR offers intensive one-week workshops in Ann Arbor and at several additional sites.
In 2013, ICPSR is pleased to offer several one-week workshops taught by distinguished members of StataCorp:
