Bayesian Propagation of Record Linkage Uncertainty into Population Size Estimation with Application to Human Rights Violations

     When:  Friday, Oct 26, 2018 (12:30-1:30 PM)
     Where:  121 Raitt

Mauricio Sadinle, Department of Biostatistics, School of Public Health, UW

Multiple-systems or capture–recapture estimation are common techniques for population size estimation, particularly in the quantitative study of human rights violations. These methods rely on multiple samples from the population, along with the information of which individuals appear in which samples. The goal of record linkage techniques is to identify unique individuals across samples based on the information collected on them.

Anjum Hajat Investigates the Relationship Between Neighborhood-Level Segregation and Cardiometabolic Risk

Racial residential segregation has been linked to adverse health outcomes, but prior studies have not examined the effect of neighborhood-level racial segregation on cardiometabolic risk (CMR), as well as whether associations differ by race/ethnicity. CSDE Affiliate Anjum Hajat, Assistant Professor of Epidemiology at UW, examines this association in the recently co-authored paper “Neighborhood segregation and cardiometabolic risk: The multiethnic study of atherosclerosis”.

Steven Goodreau Studies How Addressing Gaps in HIV Preventive Care Can Reduce Racial Disparities in HIV Incidence

A recent study co-authored by CSDE affiliate Steven Goodreau, Professor of Anthropology at UW, examines how addressing gaps in HIV preexposure prophylaxis (PrEP) can reduce racial disparities in HIV incidence in the United States. Using a network-based model of HIV transmission for younger black and white men who have sex with men in the Atlanta area, the authors evaluate how race-stratified transitions through the PrEP care continuum from initiation to adherence and retention could impact HIV incidence overall and disparities in incidence between races.
