A tradition of cutting-edge social science research
The Institute for Social Research (ISR) is a leader in developing and applying new social science methods, and training the next generation of social scientists. A growing number of ISR researchers are incorporating big data and data science research into their work.
Data science is a team science, with multiple scholars contributing expertise in the fields of advanced math and statistics, computer science, and domain expertise.
ISR researchers contribute expertise in advanced social science methodology and domain expertise to collaborative data science research projects. Partnerships with researchers from outside of ISR contribute deeper knowledge of advanced math and statistics, computer science, and specific domains.
