Adaptive Sampling - Continuing Education - Course
ASA, Section on Survey Research Methods
Instructor(s): Steven K. Thompson, The Pennsylvania State University
Adaptive sampling designs are those in which the procedure for selecting the sample depends on values of variables of interest observed during the survey. One type of example includes environmental surveys in which additional sample sites are added in the vicinity of high species abundance or pollution hot spots. Another type of example comes up in health studies involving hard-to-reach or hidden populations, such as injection drug users and others at high risk for HIV/AIDS and hepatitis C, in which social links are followed from qualifying respondents to find additional members of the hidden population. The first example is adaptive sampling in a spatial setting while the second is adaptive sampling in a network setting. In this short course an introduction to adaptive sampling ideas and methods will be given. Recent developments provide more flexible adaptive sampling methods and these new methods will be covered in this course. The course will be self-contained. Although familiarity with basic statistics is assumed, no specialized knowledge of sampling is assumed. OPTIONAL TEXTBOOK AVAILABLE

Multiple Uses of Multiple Imputation - Continuing Education - Course
ASA, Section on Survey Research Methods
Instructor(s): Donald B. Rubin, Harvard University, Trivellore Raghunathan, University of Michigan
This full-day course provides an introduction to multiple imputation and a variety of settings where this approach can be used. Though the main emphasis will be on the multiple imputation approach for handling missing data, the course will also consider other situations where multiple imputation ideas can be used, such as measurement error, confidentiality and disclosure limitation, and general model diagnostics. Software for performing multiple imputation analysis will also be discussed. The prerequisite is knowledge of basic statistical concepts such as maximum likelihood estimation, linear and logistic regression, basic asymptotic theory, and survey sampling. The course is designed at a relatively advanced level, although the emphasis of the class will be on concepts and analysis rather than formulas or mathematical details. Topics include general issues in handling missing data, patterns and mechanisms of missing data, single and multiple imputation, theoretical motivation, and software for multiple imputation analysis, multiple imputation for important applications, including for the pharmaceutical industry and complex survey designs. This course is intended for the advanced statistics practitioner or teacher who wants an introduction to multiple imputation methodology and its applications. OPTIONAL TEXTBOOK AVAILABLE
