This episode is all about statistics in social science. It's one for all the new armchair epidemiologists out there, especially if COVID has got you thinking about how we can make "evidence-based policy". Statistics cheerleader Rachel Meager, who is Assistant Professor of Economics at the London School of Economics and Politics Science, joins host Mark Fabian of Cambridge University to answer all your questions. Should you be a Bayesianism Bae or a frequentism fan? Should all social science follow economics in its fixation with causal inference, or are there other important question we ought to focus our statistical skills on? What's a randomised-control trial and why do they matter for microfinance in Africa? You want knowledge and ePODstemology is gonna give to ya.
