The Census Bureau hosts numerous seminars throughout the year on topics that inform the work we do. We often invite outside researchers to share their work. They can bring expertise and perspectives that challenge our researchers in their own work, but their views do not necessarily represent those of the Census Bureau.
Ongoing Seminar Series
Seminars from our various research areas have included the following:
- "Robust Estimation for a Supercritical Branching Processor under Family-Size Sampling" (Bret Hanlon, University of Wisconsin-Madison)
- "Multiple Imputation of Missing Categorical and Continuous Values via Bayesian Mixture Models with Local Dependence" (Jared Murray, Carnegie Mellon University)
- "The Undercount of Young Children in Surveys and Censuses" (Scott Konicki, Howard Hogan, Mary Mulry, Eric Jensen, Laurie Schwede, Heather King, Sarah Konya, Debbie Griffin; U.S. Census Bureau)
- "Detection of Features in Remotely-Sensed Data Using Harmonic Analysis" (Dan Weinberg, University of Maryland, College Park)
- "Development of Satisfaction Questionnaire: A Systematic Review" (Lin Wang, Emily Burke & Josef Argueta; U.S. Census Bureau)
- "Exploring Machine Learning Techniques for a Model-Assisted Stratification and Tailored Assignment of Self-Response Modes" (Thomas J. Chesnut, U.S. Census Bureau)
"Summer at Census" Program
The "Summer at Census" program brings in recognized scholars in statistics, social and behavioral survey methodology, statistical computing, or closely related areas for short-term visits. Scholars engage in collaborative research with Census Bureau researchers and staff on problems of data collection, processing, analysis, and dissemination, and present a seminar based on their work.
