UEP 305A Urban Data Analysis Laboratory

Weekly laboratory for Urban Data Analysis where students will directly manipulate, analyze, and visualize real-world data related to urban problems and policy concerns, such as poverty, wages and low-wage work, housing affordability and quality, transportation equity, air quality, water safety, green space, food access, and crime and public safety.  We will focus on identifying and communicating patterns of urban inequality.  Students will become familiar with Excel and be introduced to Stata, a statistical software package.  Students will learn to manage data, produce basic charts and graphs, generate descriptive statistics, and test hypotheses.
