In the lecture this week, we discuss descriptive statistics and visualisation of data, starting with single variables and then looking at examples with multiple variables. We will also spend time thinking about the assumptions required to make causal claims from analyses of observational data. Can transphobia be reduced through in-person conversations and perspective-taking exercises, or active processing?

Canvassers held single, approximately minute conversations that encouraged actively taking the perspective of others with voters to see if these conversations could markedly reduce prejudice.
