QCA Training

Wednesday, March 15, 2023, 10am-3pm.
Taught by Claude Rubinson (University of Houston-Downtown).

A one-day hybrid workshop that provides a ground-up introduction to Qualitative Comparative Analysis (QCA) and fuzzy sets. Designed for those who are new to QCA or wish to refresh their knowledge, participants will receive intensive instruction and hands-on experience with QCA software. By the end of the workshop, you will be able to begin designing and executing research projects using the set-analytic approach. Lunch is included. Access to the workshop is included in the AQCA registration fee.
