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

Posted: 6/1/2021 (CSDE Workshop)

We are excited to announce that we will be a 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 research 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.
