Thursday February 23, 2023
2:00-3:30 PM EST; 11:00-12:30 AM PST; 20.00-21.30 CET
How do governmental bodies and academic researchers ensure the data they produce and work with has the quality needed for meaningful results? Can we prepare students and the public to understand the data and statistics they will use to make decisions? How does a decentralized government produce the data we need? Can a researcher take advantage of data from different sectors? John Abowd (Associate Director for Research & Methodology and Chief Scientist at the United States Census Bureau), Professor Janet Currie (Co-director of Princeton University's Center for Health & Wellbeing and Co-director - NBER Program on Families & Children); and Katherine Wallman (former Chief Statistician of the United States) will share their insights and the challenges faced.
This is the second webinar of the 7 National Forum Series in Building Capacity of Academic Librarians in Evaluating Data Quality. This project is organized by West Chester University, Stanford University, and the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and is made possible in part by the Institute of Museum and Library Services (RE-252357-OLS-22).
