Links and Cats

For those of you who are interested in such things, I’ve included some links to websites and institutions that I like and support.


SOCIOLOGY & RESEARCH

University of Alberta Population Research Laboratory (PRL) 

The PRL was a social science research center at the University of Alberta that conducted surveys on a wide range of topics for over 50 years. Sadly, they were forced to close due to budget cuts at the university. Their website still shares information on earlier surveys, though. – http://www.prl.ualberta.ca/

University of Alberta Interdisciplinary Committee on Applied Graduate Statistics (ICAGS) 

The Interdisciplinary Committee on Applied Graduate Statistics advances graduate education in quantitative methods used in the social sciences by promoting interdisciplinary cooperation across departments at the University of Alberta. – https://icags.ca
