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 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 21st at noon, in Room N354 at the Institute for
Quantitative Social Science (IQSS is located on the 3rd Floor of CGIS
North, 1737 Cambridge St., located behind the Design School). Contact
information and previous presentations may be found at the course web
