Sample Surveys

Tess Kolp, Christopher Shank, and Brittany Hall
Stat 5630, Summer 2017
Western Michigan University

Sample survey students conducted mini-surveys this summer. The projects provide an opportunity for the student to reflect on issues regarding measurement, sample selection, and sources of potential bias. These three 15-minute presentations were selected for their diversity in sampling methodology, besides being interesting and educational.

Tess Kolp (BS Math) conducted a Twitter-based survey on opinions about potential rule changes in major league baseball. Christopher Shank (PhD EMR) will talk about the survey on post-graduation activities of WMU students. Brittany Hall (BS Stat) will discuss a sample of job announcements that come up when you type "statistics" and "data science" in job-search websites.
All statistics graduate students are expected to attend.
