The Research Workshop in Applied Statistics is a forum for graduate
students, faculty, and visiting scholars to present and discuss work
in progress and exchange ideas.  It is intended as a tour of Harvard's
statistical innovations and applications with weekly stops in
different disciplines such as economics, epidemiology, medicine,
political science, psychology, public policy, public health, sociology and
statistics.  The topics of papers presented in previous years included
missing data, survey analysis, Bayesian simulation, sample selection,
and models for election and portfolio choice. Faculty and student
participants in the workshop present their current projects, and guest
speakers also give occasional presentations. The workshop provides an
excellent opportunity for informal interaction between graduate
students and faculty from a variety of disciplines. Course credit is
available for students as Government 3009. Lunch is provided.

If you are interested, please be sure to attend our first meeting on
Wednesday, September 18th at noon, in Room 22, Center for Basic Research
in Social Sciences (CBRSS, 34 Kirkland St., this is the yellow building
across the street from William James Hall). Contact information
