2005 ICPSR Summer Program in Quantitative Methods of Social Research
ICPSR Summer Program offers research students and novice faculty members
a comprehensive, integrated course in research design, statistics, data analysis,
and social methodology. The program provides active participatory data
analytic experiences that complement formal lectures and discussions. In
general, emphasis is focused on those courses and subjects that are not
normally integral part of the curricula of member institutions.
There are two four-week Summer Program sessions, with intensive seminars and special workshops.
The first session will take place in June 27-July 22 and the second in July 25-August 19 2005.
ISDC, representing the Israeli National Membership in ICPSR consortium, allocates a small subsidy
for 1-2 Israeli participants every year. Still, candidates are well advised to obtain other
funds for travel and accommodation expenses.

A new Authorization system for ISDC web-sites
A new authorization shell for
and FastAnalysis has
been recently launched. It enables the user to choose a password not dictated by the
software, to change it and to ask for a password reminder. It also provides the ISDC
staff with better usage monitoring as well as better protection of the statistical
confidentiality in Fast Analysis.
The shell was developed by Alan Rubin of the ISDC staff.
