Research Workshop in Applied Statistics

Next Wednesday, February 2nd, join the Applied Statistics Workshop at 12
noon as we kick off the Spring 2005 semester with Alan Zaslavsky's
presentation, "Using California Cancer Registry Data to Assess Variations
in Quality of Care for Colorectal Cancer."  The corresponding paper is

As usual, lunch will be served at noon, and the presentation will begin at
12:15 PM in Room 22 of the Center for Basic Research in the Social
Sciences, 34 Kirkland Street (the yellow house across from William James
Hall).  We hope you can attend.

For those unfamiliar with the Applied Statistics Workshop:

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.  Our mailing list includes over 200 people, and
overlapping subsets of that group join us each week.

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.
