The scientific and educational resource http://rotmistrov.com

As part of this initiative, I popularize methods of sociology, marketing, political analytics, i.e. the data analysis methods that address sociological, marketing, political science problems.

The resource contains video guidance and other information dedicated data analysis methods.

How to choose the right procedure or method of data analysis?

If you know the name of the method you are interested in, just look it up on the site one of 4 ways:

  1. hovering the mouse over the item Методы in the main menu (where methods are in alphabetical order)
  2. using the navigation buttons on the methods on the right (in the mobile version - below)
  3. by using the search option in your web browser (usually Cntl + F)
  4. by using the search option on the site at the top right

If you do not find your preferred method, write to me, so I prepared video guidance on it.

If you do not know exactly what method you are interested, read the small text on the methods page.
