In this workshop, you’ll be introduced to the Total Error Framework that represents the “life cycle” of survey research. Survey research involves decision-making that can impact the quality of a survey’s representation and measurement. These decisions can introduce error that ultimately affects a survey’s validity and reliability. This workshop will focus on holistically understanding these errors, strategies to minimize them, and when they may impact statistical estimates.  Presenter: Nikk...

Speaker Alan Mislove Abstract The enormous financial success of online advertising platforms is partially due to the precise targeting and delivery features they offer. These platforms routinely claim to be able to identify which platform users are most likely to meet advertisers’ objectives, and steer ads towards those users via their ad delivery algorithms. This is typically accomplished by estimating the “relevance” of ads to users, but raises a number of concerns about bias, discrimin...

Quality childcare is an elemental need. It allows parents to work at paid jobs, which in turn helps to support the economic well-being of our communities. Equally as crucial, it provides early childhood development for the next generation. Anyone who has tried to find quality childcare, however, knows that it is not easy to find—or very affordable. In the past five years, Iowa has lost more than a third of its childcare providers, and the cost of child care amounts to 15.3% of the average I...
