|| Chris Browning and Kate Calder on network analysis. The
presentation will include discussion of their current work, and will
also be based in part on the paper: Mark
S. Handcock and Krista J. Gile. Modeling social networks from
sampled data. Ann. Appl. Stat. Volume 4, Number 1 (2010), 5-25.
||Rebecca Andridge on quality indicators in surveys and R-scores.
The presentation will include discussion of her current work, and
will also be based in part on these two
papers, which should be "easy" to read:
||Bo Lu on dual frame survey sampling. Bo has suggested that you
take a look at:
C. J. Skinner and J. N. K. Rao (Mar., 1996) Estimation in Dual Frame Surveys With Complex Designs
Journal of the American Statistical Association
Vol. 91, No. 433 (pp. 349-356). He says it's a bit on the
technical side, so it's not important to understand everything in
||Elly Kaizar on Record Linkage. She will be presenting the ideas

outperforms deterministic record linkage

survival data through Kendall's tau. In addition to her own
research, her talk will be based on the
