BigSurv 2018: Exploring new statistical frontiers at the intersection of survey science and big data
BigSurv18 will bring together international researchers, practitioners, and experts to address how promising technologies and methodologies for using massive datasets can improve, supplement, or replace data and estimates from complex surveys and censuses.
Presentations and short courses will cover tools and approaches for understanding the role and potential of Big Data to replace or complement some traditional data collections or to provide new kinds of information that will improve data quality and increase their utility. We will compile the conference’s best papers into a published monograph volume and a peer-reviewed special issue of the Social Science Computer Review to help carry these insights beyond the event.
