The Transparency Series – Political Polling
April 4 @ 10:00 am - 5:00 pm EDT
Drumhil Mehta, FiveThirtyEight
The last workshop in the Transparency Series takes you through techniques for looking at one or more polls over time. Join Dhrumil Mehta who leads Pollapalooza at FiveThirtyEight to get exposed to sources, tools, and strategies for working with polls — starting at the very beginning with simple random samples, and leading to the detailed models that are employed today. All the while, the workshop will emphasize how to find and tell interesting, novel stories with polls. No prior experience in statistics or data analysis is needed.
