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 either an upper-level Government 
or Sociology class. Lunch is provided. 

Meetings are Wednesdays 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 and previous presentations 
may be found at the course web site:
