Understanding the sociology and psychology of human actions

Research Program

The research program of the Department of Methodology and Statistics aims to develop, refine, and disseminate advanced methods of collecting, interpreting, and analyzing quantitative data.

We focus on latent variable models of individual differences (structural equation models, factor analysis, latent class and finite mixture models, item response models), survey methodology (response styles, sampling, norming, missing data imputation), and meta-research (publication bias, meta-analysis, statistical decision-making).
