The lectures thus are in English but we can use Finnish to some extent (your questions!). The training is possible both in Finnish and English. Emails are obviously sometimes used in communication. Please do not hesitate to ask and comment by email, at least.
Survey Methodology in Finnish is Surveymetodiikka, you can find my Finnish Free e-book from my University Website. In the end of the book is the vocabulary Finnish - English.
The course material will cover two cores:
- (i) Lectures that are both the Word files and also PPT's in their shorter forms. These will be uploaded here before each event (Wednesday 16:15)
- (ii) Training tasks that will be given before the training sessions (you can choose either Thursday 14:15-16:00 or Thursday 16:15-18:00, SSKH). Maria and me will help in your training so that it should be possible to prepare the report during these events (given that you are attending).
In addition, if you wish to make another report 'European Statistical System' (ESS), it will add your course value, and give more options for your future career. Note that the we use the data of the European Social Survey (ESS) in the first part of the training. It covers the basics of the other ESS. Thus: ESS means the two things, maybe surprisingly.
This is template of the trainings
Save the template in your best folder and then start your report.
Itse laitan nämä z:n sopivaan sub-folderiin mutta voihan kaiken laittaa vaikkapa tikullekin lisäksi.
First four tasks
The number of tasks will be increased every week.
Tässä on siis aloitustehtäviä joista tärkein on ESS-tiedoston luonti muutamalla pakollisella ja omavalintaisilla muuttujilla. Tapa näytetään harjoituksissa. Ei oo vaikeata mutta on hyvä tietysti miettiä mitä valitsee.
