About the Course

This course will cover the steps used in weighting sample surveys, including methods for adjusting for nonresponse and using data external to the survey for calibration. Among the techniques discussed are adjustments using estimated response propensities, poststratification, raking, and general regression estimation. Alternative techniques for imputing values for missing items will be discussed. For both weighting and imputation, the capabilities of different statistical software packages will be covered, including R®, Stata®, and SAS®....

This course was hard to follow, hard to complete (quizzes), poorly designed and with little useful content. In other words, not worth the money I paid for it!

Good course, but I would have liked some hands-on course assignments to feel like I could apply what I learned.

There is scope for a lot of improvement in terms of quality of content as well as videos. There also appeared to be technical issues in the quizzes wherein the correct responses were often returned as incorrect & vice-versa, for a few quizzes. Without a moderator, queries are not addressed and nobody appears to be keeping track of the feedback. I was disappointed in the course since the previous courses in the specialization were far better designed and executed.

The contents of this course could be interesting, but they end up being terribly boring. The course lacks examples to bring things to life. A pity!

I wrote some indepth feedback, but par for the course, I can't save it - either here or on the discussion board. Nothing obscene, but certainly some major frustration with format, inconsistencies in scoring and format, information not reviewed in the course on some of the quizzes, the fact that Coursera keeps trying to sell me the specialty, the lack of ANY moderator on the discussion board to provide assistance...and can go on with the technical issues to but I won't!

Wow... I've taken several courses on this site and this one is just not good in several ways. There are technical issues with the volume. The summary of information is really lacking detail. The section on R is not remotely useful if you have never used R before.

This course is to be changed completely. The criticism expressed in the forum are mostly true.
