Manual for the political behavior laboratory by William H Flanigan( Book )

1 edition published in 1967 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A laboratory manual containing 14 exercises for students taking intermediate-level courses on US public opinion and voting behavior. The first 2 studies deal with survey research methods and the use of data processing equipment. The remaining 12 are substantive exercises in the analysis of political survey data. The purpose of these assignments is to provide an opportunity for students to reanalyze political survey data and compare their findings with those of persons who conducted the first analysis. All studies are based on previously analyzed presidential election surveys that were conducted by the University of Michigan's Survey Research Center in 1952, 1956, 1960, and 1964. The University of Minnesota first introduced similar exercises in the spring of 1963 and discovered that when students mastered the techniques of analysis, they successfully organized their own analysis around topics of their own choosing. The manual is the first of a series designed to stimulate independent research. Similar presentations are planned in the areas of comparative government, community power, legislative and judicial behavior, international relations, political development, and quantitative methods.

Manual for the Judicial Behavior Laboratory by Samuel Krislov( Book )

2 editions published in 1969 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This manual introduces undergraduates to resources and data analysis methods for studying judicial behavior and constitutional law. It contains 12 exercises, most of which are based on outside reading and analysis of data provided in appendices. Exercise one introduces the basic tools and methods for research in a law library, emphasizing use of the "Corpus Jures Secundum, ""Shepard's Citations," and the "Index to Legal Periodicals." Exercise two discusses fundamentals for reading and briefing a case, and for understanding and organizing a court opinion. Exercise three explores the relation of established rules of law to the values and attitudes of the community or culture in which they have developed. Exercises four through six examine the relationship between judges' background characteristics, such as religion or party affiliation, and their judicial decisions. Data from voting records provide the basis for these exercises. Various data analysis methods are explained in exercises seven through 12. These include construction and use of Guttman scales, bloc analysis matrices, and a voting power index. These methods are useful in determining how a specific judicial decision compares to others, and how much influence one member of a voting body has in comparison to other members of the same body.

Manual for the Comparative Politics Laboratory Conditions for Effective Democracy by Edwin Fogelman( Book )

1 edition published in 1968 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This manual introduces undergraduate students in political science to major types of data and methods for cross-national quantitative analysis. The manual's topic, Conditions for Effective Democracy, was chosen because it incorporates several different kinds of data and illustrates various methodological problems. The data are cross-sectional aggregate data, longitudinal aggregate data, and cross-national attitudinal data taken from a five-nation study. The manual contains 10 exercises. The first four examine a series of journal articles about the social and economic conditions associated with successful democracy. Exercise five introduces longitudinal data from the Minnesota Political Data Archive for analyzing sequential relationships among political, social, and economic variables over extended periods of time. The remaining five exercises involve reanalysis of major research findings concerning the attitudinal characteristics of democratic systems. Students do not need previous training in statistics or methods. The only equipment needed to complete the exercises is a counter-sorter, although a calculator would also be helpful. Staff for the course will need a key punch and reproducer. (Author/AV)
