Hi all,

We hope that you can join us for the penultimate Applied Statistics
Workshop of the year this Wednesday, April 20th. This week we are
extremely excited to have Jeffrey Lewis, Associate Professor of
Political Science at UCLA, presenting on the compactness of
congressional districts, a topic that involves some interesting
econometric issues as well as a large GiS component. Note that this is
a change from what is on the schedule. As usual, we will start the
workshop at 12 noon with a light lunch and begin the talk at 12:15. We
wrap up the workshop at 1:30pm.
