CSDE Seminar Series

CSDE Closing Reception

     When: Friday, Jun 4, 2021 (12:30 - 1:30PM)
     Where: Virtual via Zoom

As our unusual 2020-21 academic year draws to a close, we will take time to recognize our trainee community. CSDE Trainees are vital members contributing to our seminar series, participating in working groups, taking our courses, and contributing their talents and ideas to our entire research endeavor. CSDE Trainees are what it’s all about for all of us! Because… where would we be without the next generation of population scientists?

Please join us in celebrating their accomplishments. We’ll be sharing ‘shout-outs’ for those who have completed CSDE Graduate Certificates in Demographic Methods, those who have completed major milestones and degrees, those with grants and publications, and those who have landed new career positions, applying their population science training. Faculty advisors and supporters, CSDE Affiliates, Trainees, Staff, and anyone interested in joining the CSDE community are welcome to attend using the link below.

CSDE Workshops

Sign up for CSDE's First 'Lunch and Learn' on Methods for Sampling Hard to Reach Populations!

     When: June 8 & June 10, 2021 (1.00 - 2.00 pm)
     Where: Virtual via Zoom

We are excited to announce that we will be launching our first CSDE Lunch and Learn: Methods for Sampling Hard-to-Reach Populations on Tuesday, June 8th from 1-2pm and Thursday, June 10th from 1-2pm. During this session, one of the leading statisticians studying innovative approaches to sampling, Tyler McCormick (UW Statistics and Sociology) will discuss the benefits, assumptions and pitfalls of methods for sampling hard-to-reach populations. McCormick will discuss how these methods operate in real research contexts, using cases suggested by attendees. This will be a great opportunity to learn more about existing and innovative methods for sampling and how to apply them in your own research. Attendees are encouraged to attend both sessions, which will each focus on different sampling methods, in order to gain a more comprehensive insight into sampling methods and how best to apply them in your projects. A description of the Lunch and Learn and the link to the sign-ups is here. We encourage attendees to also complete this short survey by Thursday, June 3rd where you can submit descriptions of your proposed or in-progress research studies that aim to survey hard-to-reach populations, so we can better tailor examples and materials to the interests of attendees. (read more)
