Data Analysis and Politics “For today’s August 31, 2016 First Class graduate, one word: STATISTICS”-NYT A New Paradigm Today we learned about the importance of the course (cause obviously it wouldn’t be required if it weren’t important)! Some key points: 1. Using data analysis has become HUGE in he world today because there is more “big data” available from the government, non-profits, and citizens via social media. “Big data” meaning professions, hobbies, ages, genders, political preferences, social commonalities. 2. There are now massive servers that have the computing power to analyze this data 3. This is CHANGING THE WAY WE UNDERSTAND POLITICS by helping us narrow down who should be targeted for specific candidate campaigns, and knowing how to best reach constituents (example: do more people get intrigued by candidates through Facebook ads, videos, free stickers, door to door, mail, speeches, personal calls). This course will teach you… • How to interpret and evaluate Social Science studies • being able to understand articles or presentation graphics that use data to comprehend the main points of the study. • How to answer important political questions using data • What type of person is more likely to vote for Trump? If crime goes up who is more likely to be elected? • Practical skills that will lead to a JOB WHY R CODE? -Employers such as Facebook Twitter, Bank of America, Forbes, and Firefox use R code. That means this code can be a huge pull for employers to hire you. - It’s FREE and open sourced which means that other people have created small code lines that are accessible for your use, and you’re able to create code “packages” for them as well. -Great starter language that can make it easier for you to learn other computer codes as well. TIP: START YOUR CHEAT SHEET FOR THE FINAL EXAM EARLY! ONE PAGE.
