Workshop: Bayesian Concepts for Data Analysis

"Workshop: Bayesian Concepts for Data Analysis"

Instructor: Michael Tzen

Content:
This 1 hour workshop will provide a sampling of introductory concepts for bayesian analysis. We will use Bayes Rule (and its implications) to think about data analysis. When used as a framework to model phenomenon, the analyst gets to work with 4 useful distributions: the prior, posterior, prior predictive, & posterior predictive. We will predict what clothing size 2Chainz wears. We'll also look at the Gompertz Rule from demography. In both examples, the bayesian framework allows us to clearly express the estimand, information from data, information from prior knowledge, and the estimator.

This workshop is the first of a two part series. The first workshop is conceptual while the second workshop will focus on software. The date for the second workshop is TBD.

CCPR Census Workshop Series Part 1: How the US 2020 Decennial Census Affects You and Your Research

The two-word goal of “count everyone” is simply stated, but difficult. In this workshop we will give a broad overview of the many moving parts connected to the US decennial operation. Although fair apportionment is the primary motivator for a complete enumeration, we highlight how the 2020 decennial also serves as an important backbone for future products such as sample surveys used in demographic research. Along the discussion, we will point out difficulties along with the demographic and statistical methods…
