Computer Simulations for Research Design

Computer Simulations for Research Design

This is a complete online workbook that introduces the use of computer simulations in applied social research designs. There are two versions of each of the simulations, one accomplished manually (by rolling dice) and the other done using the MINITAB statistical package. The major two-group, program-comparison designs (randomized experiment, regression-discontinuity, nonequivalent group design) are simulated and the issue of regression artifacts is studied.
