Call for Virtual Workshop Practicum, Student Showcase Submissions

Due to the success the six-part virtual workshop about various aspects and challenges of working with blended data, the Government and Social Statistics sections are continuing in fall 2020 with sessions focusing on user applications.

Hosted again as part of the ASA’s professional development series, this virtual workshop practicum will share experiences putting the techniques and lessons learned into practice with a large statistical community without the inconvenience and cost of conference travel.

In addition to highlighting work from career professionals and seasoned practitioners in blended data, the sections are offering a student showcase within the practicum offerings so students can share their work with the statistics community.

Students and professionals can submit their projects putting blended data techniques into practice by sending a title and brief description (200-word abstract) to Government Statistics Section 2020 Chair Jenny Thompson.
