The Analysis of Cross-Classified Categorical Data - Continuing Education - Course
ASA, Section on Survey Research Methods
Instructor(s): Stephen Fienberg, Carnegie Mellon University
Statistical methods for the analysis of categorical data in the form of contingency tables date back to the turn of the last century and were transformed by the development of log-linear model methods in the 1960s and 1970s, when computation via maximum likelihood estimation became widely accessible via the major statistical packages. This course is based on materials from an MS-level course taught at Carnegie Mellon and will introduce participants to log-linear models and methods for fitting them to multidimensional contingency tables. The material will include the use of graphical models and their interpretation and the applicability of the methodology to large sparse tables.

Model-Based Survey Sampling: Theory and Practice - Continuing Education - Course
ASA, Section on Survey Research Methods
Instructor(s): Alan H. Dorfman, Bureau of Labor Statistics, Richard Valliant, University of Michigan
Use of models for estimation from survey samples is becoming progressively more important. Practitioners must understand how to efficiently use available data to both increase precision and correct potential bias due to declining response rates. This course will provide an overview of the use of models to design efficient samples and improve estimators through the use of auxiliary data. We will compare design-based and model-based estimation and discuss the integrated approach of model-assisted estimation. This course will cover the types of auxiliary information typically available in samples of business establishments, institutions, and households; models that may be appropriate; use of models in determining sample designs and creating estimators; and software with particular emphasis on packages available in R. Participants will receive a topic-specific list of references to use for follow-up reading.

Bootstrap for Complex Surveys - Continuing Education - Course
ASA, Section on Survey Research Methods
Instructor(s): Stanislav Kolenikov, University of Missouri-Columbia
The bootstrap methods for complex survey data have been around for more than two decades, yet their treatment in textbooks and software implementation has been limited. This course is intended for survey statisticians who want to familiarize themselves with the bootstrap methods for complex survey data and find solutions for situations when the standard resampling methods, such as BRR, are not applicable. Basic ideas of the bootstrap will be introduced, and modifications necessary for complex samples from finite populations will be considered. Implementation of the bootstrap procedures by the method of replication weights will be demonstrated. Extensions leading to the bootstrap methods with missing/imputed data will be overviewed. Practical demonstrations will be conducted using Stata and R software packages. Attendees must be familiar with the basic concepts of sampling (i.e., stratification, clustering, varying probabilities of selection, use of sampling weights), design-based estimation (i.e., Horvitz-Thompson estimator, Taylor series linearization for variance estimation), and at least one of the aforementioned software packages. Familiarity with resampling variance estimators (i.e., BRR, jackknife) is an advantage. If you bring your laptop to follow the practical demonstration and perform self-check exercises, please have Stata or R installed. Availability of the power outlets in the room will be limited. Make sure you have a fully charged battery. Performing computationally intensive tasks such as bootstrap depletes batteries at a faster rate than your regular laptop use.
