Advanced Topics in Survey Sampling — Continuing Education Course
ASA , Section on Survey Research Methods
Instructor(s): Jae-kwang Kim, Iowa State University, Wayne Fuller, Iowa State University
The basic theory for survey sampling is well established and is presented in a number of textbooks, but most texts cover the material at an intermediate level. The proposed course is designed for researchers and practitioners interested in advanced techniques and the theory underlying those techniques. The topics include asymptotic theory in survey sampling, optimality in estimation and design, and use of models with survey samples. Understanding advanced theory in these areas is important for the design and analysis of complex large-scale surveys and for development of rigorous statistical theory relevant to sample surveys. Participants should have a background in survey sampling and in statistical theory. Recent graduates working in survey sampling and graduate students are especially encouraged to attend.

What Statisticians Should Know About the American Community Survey — Continuing Education Course
ASA , Section on Survey Research Methods
Instructor(s): Deborah Harner Griffin, U.S. Census Bureau, Alfredo Navarro, U.S. Census Bureau
In December of 2010 the U. S. Census Bureau released the first set of small area estimates from the American Community Survey (ACS). The ACS is the new source of detailed demographic, social, economic, and housing data for areas as small as census tracts and block groups. Similar data were released after Census 2000 from the long form sample. The Census Bureau will release ACS data annually in the form of 1-year estimates (for the largest geographic areas), 3-year estimates (for smaller geographic areas) and 5-year estimates (for all areas). This short course is designed to familiarize statisticians with the ACS and its many data products. The course will provide an overview of the basic design of the ACS and the methods used to produce survey estimates. We will demonstrate how to access and use ACS data and will provide specific examples of how to access, download and manipulate both ACS summary tabulations from the American FactFinder and ACS public use microdata sample files. We will discuss some of the issues associated with the use and interpretation of ACS multiyear estimates. Target audience The target audience includes analysts and statisticians from federal agencies and state and local governments, the media, researchers, survey methodologists, and private sector statisticians with a basic understanding of the ACS and an interest in improving their skills in using and interpreting ACS data. This course is aimed at the statistical community to provide an overview of the information available from the ACS and the types of analyses that are possible. Material will be presented at an introductory level but will include information of interest to more advanced ACS data users.
