Drawn from scholarship appearing in the current issue of The ANNALS of the American Academy of Political and Social Science, this free webinar explores the nexus of actionable analysis and big data from public, private and research sources.
Four researchers in the thick of tapping a broad array of information from disparate sources like administrative data, social media, smartphones, the Census, and experiments, and using that data to promote good policies for individual and communities, are panelists for this event: sociologist Christopher R. Browning of The Ohio State University; Barbara Entwisle, Kenan Professor of Sociology at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill; Elizabeth Fussell of the Population Studies and Training Center at Brown University; and Emilio F. Moran, John A. Hannah Distinguished Professor at Michigan State University and co-guest editor of the ANNALS volume.
The webinar is scheduled for 9 a.m. PT/noon ET on February 27. It is free, but attendees are urged to register in advance because online space is limited.
