A Practical Guide for Surveys Based on Nonprobability Sample

Practical Guide for Surveys Based on Nonprobability Samples Mansour Fahimi,Frances Barlas, and Randall Thomas, will be recorded in February 2018. This webinar will will begin with an overview of different types of nonprobability samples and discuss their pros and cons from a fitness for use perspective. Focusing on online surveys, we will cover best practices for sourcing and selection of such samples, including effective options for sample balancing, incentive options, and considerations for data quality given the vast and varied landscape of sample providers. Lastly, we will lay the foundation for our next webinar on robust weighting and calibration methodologies that can reduce some of the inherent biases of such samples, as well as optimal methods for blending probability and nonprobability samples. We will end this webinar with some contemplations about the new directions in survey sampling in the digital age.

AAPOR Task Force Report on Transitions from Telephone Survey

Since the 1970s, telephone methods have been a ubiquitous way of collecting large scale surveys. With the changing environment for telephone surveys, an increasing number of surveys are transitioning from telephone to self-administered single- or mixed-mode surveys, which may or may not retain telephone as one component of recruitment and/or data collection. This webinar provides an overview of the AAPOR Task Force Report on transitioning from telephone surveys to self-administered and/or mixed mode surveys. The task force report focuses on a "lay of the land," examining which design features are considered and which are used when telephone surveys are transitioned to mixed mode surveys, as well as their relative strengths and weaknesses. The goal of the webinar is not to provide an overview of how to do mixed mode studies in general, but specifically focus on issues that emerge when transitioning existing telephone surveys to mixed mode surveys, and thus requiring potential breaks in time series.

Accuracy in Election Polling: Lessons from 2016 for Covering

For journalists grappling with conflicting results, margins of error and polls conducted by text, the American Association for Public Opinion Research (AAPOR) is offered a webinar for journalists on January 15, 2020, 11:00 am Eastern time. The webinar looked back the polls' performance in 2016 (surprise, the polls did pretty well) and forward to 2020 to give journalists the tools to report reliably on what the polls showed. AAPOR, the nation's leading professional organization of survey researchers, offers a wealth of material and guidance on how to handle polls. And AAPOR has experts who are ready to answer questions from journalists stumped by the latest poll hand-out through the election year. From what a journalist must ask about a poll before even writing the first word to figuring out if Biden is really ahead of Warren in South Carolina, the webinar will go in-depth on the potential pitfalls that face journalists every day in reporting on poll results. The explosion of polling methods from IVR to text surveys, the plethora of samples (RDD, RBS, Voter files and on) and the emergence of new polling organizations all pose a challenge for journalists. Journalists participating in the online webinar will have the chance to ask their questions about polling and 2020.

AI for Social Good: Examples, Challenges, and Opportunities

Can AI, ML and Data Science help prevent children from getting lead poisoning? Can it reduce infant and maternal mortality? Can it reduce police violence and misconduct? Can it help cities better target limited resources to improve lives of citizens and achieve equity? We're all aware of the potential of ML and AI but turning this potential into tangible social impact takes cross-disciplinary training, new methods, and scalable data and computational infrastructure. I'll discuss lessons learned from working on 50+ projects over the past few years with non-profits and governments on high-impact public policy and social challenges in criminal justice, public health, education, economic development, public safety, workforce training, and urban infrastructure. I'll highlight opportunities as well as challenges around explainability and bias/fairness that need to tackled in order to have social and policy impact in a fair and equitable manner.

An Intro to Text Analysis for Social Scientists

From open-ended survey questions to social media streams, text data can offer social scientists rich insights that extend beyond the traditional survey - but it can also pose substantial challenges, often including the need for extensive human coding. Fortunately, modern computational tools are making it easier to analyze free-form text. This webinar introduces the basics of working with text data quantitatively, provide an overview of common text analysis methods and tools, and demonstrate some of them in action.
