SAMSI Computational Methods for Censuses and Surveys

Event Dates: Wednesday  January 08 - Friday  January 10
City: Washington   State: District of Columbia   Country: USA
Event Type: Workshops & Seminars ASA Sponsored: No
A two-and-a-half day workshop, held at the Bureau of Labor Statistics in Washington, DC, that will involve roughly 12-15 invited talks along with formal panel discussions, a poster session, and time available for informal collaboration-building discussions. The workshop is part of SAMSI's 2013-14 program on Computational Methods in Social Sciences (CMSS). For many years, practical work with censuses and surveys has involved complex methodological issues. Standard approaches have addressed some of these issues in a reasonably comprehensive form, while leaving other issues with unsatisfactory or incomplete solutions. In addition, large-scale statistical organizations are now encountering important new methodological opportunities and challenges arising from prospective new data sources; and from changes in salient features of the data-collection environment, resource constraints and cost structures. Addressing these issues requires modern statistical methodology and novel computational approaches.
