Sampling, Weighting and Estimation in Survey Methodology

The second SERISS training course “Sampling, Weighting and Estimation in Survey Methodology” will be held on 24th-25th April 2017 in Ljubljana, Slovenia. The course will be instructed by Stefan Zins (GESIS – Leibniz Institute for the Social Sciences in Mannheim) and Matthias Sand (GESIS – Leibniz Institute for the Social Sciences in Mannheim).

This course will cover three interrelated topics: methods of selecting complex samples, creation of analysis weights that adjust for nonresponse and undercoverage, and the analysis of data collected via complex weighted surveys. No prior knowledge of sampling theory is assumed, but  students should be comfortable with statistical concepts such as hypothesis  testing, variance, standard errors, confidence intervals, etc. Also basic understanding of survey methodology and understanding of R is required for this course (at  a beginners level).

25 participants will be given the chance to attend training course. There will be no tuition fees or accommodation costs for all participants, who will be selected from the applications received. Lunch will be provided on both days and a group dinner will be held on the first evening.

Applications are being accepted until February 13th, 2017 and the results of the selection will be known by the end of February 2017.
