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 recent years include matching estimators,
missing data, survey analysis, Bayesian simulation, sample selection,
detecting biological attacks, the impact of the Earned Income Tax Credit,
and voter 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. Free lunch is provided.

If you are interested, please be sure to attend our organizational meeting
on Wednesday, September 22nd 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
