SIPP Data Workshop

The U.S. Census Bureau is pleased to announce a free, one-day workshop on the Survey of Income and Program Participation (SIPP), sponsored with the University of Michigan's Survey Research Center.  The workshop will be held on Friday, May 15, at the Census Bureau headquarters in Suitland, MD.

Taught by Dr. H. Luke Shaefer (Associate Professor of Social Work and National Poverty Center Research Affiliate, University of Michigan), the workshop provides an introduction to the SIPP and its data.  Focusing on the 2008 SIPP panel design, it begins with an overview of the survey, describes some issues to consider when conducting SIPP analysis, and provides a number of tools for successful data analysis.  The workshop introduce participants to new SIPP data products, including the SIPP Synthetic Beta and the newly redesigned SIPP, and concludes with a hands-on exercise that allows participants to analyze the data themselves under the tutelage of Dr. Shaefer and other knowledgeable SIPP users.

This workshop will not offer instruction in statistics or formal research methods, but the presentations will cover the use of weighted data, tests of significance, and both OLS and logistic regression models.
