Next year in February (2019) I’ll be teaching a course on Age-Period-Cohort models at the ECPR Winter School of Methods and Techniques and I would be grateful if you would encourage your students to apply! Age Period Cohort analysis is useful for anyone interested in analysing time varying social and political changes, identifying the trends and their dynamics among the population. My course is designed to give participants a deep knowledge of Age-Period-Cohort (APC) Models. These are models that help examine whether time varying changes in social and political phenomena are due to the biological and social process of ageing (age effects), social or economic factors, for example an economic crisis (period effects) or due to the unique experience of a group, for example individuals socialised under an authoritarian regime (cohort effects).
The course is taking place from the 22th of February until the 1st of March, 2019 (1 week). Students who will complete a take home exam and a research paper will receive 4 ECTS points.

Registration opens in October 1st.
