CSDE Seminar Series

Because many of our Affiliates will be at PAA 2018 this Friday, there is no CSDE Seminar this week. If you’re headed to the conference as well, make sure you stop by some of our Affiliates’ presentations! You can see a list of CSDE speakers, topics, and times here.

We will resume next Friday on May 4 with a special Earl and Edna Stice Memorial Lecture – join Guy Abel as he discusses how to use a Bayesian probabilistic methodology to harmonize migration data from different sources.

Last week, All Things Considered examined the new wave of data analysts researching gun violence, citing that many researchers entering the field grew up in an era punctuated by mass shootings. Former CSDE Trainee Nicole Kravitz-Wirtz, a Researcher in the Violence Prevention Research Program at the UC Davis School of Medicine, shared her perspective, noting: “The issue of firearm violence resonates with our generation.

Sara Curran Discusses the Implications of the 2020 Census Citizenship Question

Yesterday, CSDE Director Sara Curran, Professor of International Studies at the Henry M. Jackson School, wrote an op-ed for The Seattle Times about the most recent revision to the 2020 Census form, which now asks respondents to report on their U.S. citizenship. Curran posits that the inclusion of this question will have a range of implications — including a systematic undercount of U.S. residents and growing potential for security breaches of Census data — that will jeopardize a complete and fair census.
