MN4128 Advanced Topics in Manpower Policy Evaluation

The DoD is constantly evaluating the feasibility and likely consequences of various policy proposals. Typically, however, these analyses must be executed in a short period of time.  This course prepares students to conduct real-time policy analysis in the DoD, focusing on the inevitable tradeoffs between depth of analysis and speed of completion.  Students will practice using the theoretical and analytical skills learned in pre-requisite courses to derive data-driven solutions to policy questions.  Students will also learn new data-presentation and data-visualization techniques that enable them to present those solutions to decision makers in a robust and coherent manner. 


This is a follow on course to the MSA curriculum econometric sequence. Students should be familiar with the topics and statistical software used in MN4110 and MN4111
