    The International Association for Survey Statisticians invites you to participate in its webinar "Making inferences from non-probability samples through data integration

    This event will be recorded, so if you do not wish to get up in the middle of the night to watch this webinar, please register and you will be provided with a link to the recording after the event.

    For several decades, national statistical agencies around the world have been using probability surveys as their preferred tool to meet information needs about a population of interest. In the last few years, there has been a wind of change and other data sources are being increasingly explored. Five key factors are behind this trend: the decline in response rates in probability surveys, the high cost of data collection, the increased burden on respondents, the desire for access to “real-time” statistics, and the proliferation of non-probability data sources. In this presentation, the speaker, Jean-François Beaumont, reviews some data integration approaches that take advantage of both probability and non-probability data sources such as the dual frame weighting, calibration, statistical matching, inverse probability weighting and small area estimation. He discusses the characteristics of each approach, including their benefits and limitations, and present a few empirical results.

    Speaker: Jean-François Beaumont

    Jean-François Beaumont is Senior Statistical Advisor at Statistics Canada, where he has been working for over 25 years. He is currently the Editor of Survey Methodology. His recent research projects and applications have mainly focused on data integration and small area estimation.

    Please use the following link to register for the webinar:

    After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the webinar. There will be time for questions. The webinar will be recorded and made available on the IASS and ISI website. The abstract and information about the speaker are given below.

    SSA is proudly offering this 2 day course with Presenter Dr Oscar Perez-Concha, Centre for Big Data Research in Health, UNSW Sydney. 

    This workshop introduces the basics for understanding and using machine learning algorithms.

    We will discuss the machine learning workflow, from clearly defining our research question to the rationale behind choosing different machine learning techniques for different scenarios, highlighting questions such as over-fitting/under-fitting, missing data, and interpretability. We will focus on the principles behind some of the most used supervised learning algorithms.

    However, the detailed mathematics underlying these algorithms will not be discussed.Real healthcare scenarios using Python will be presented. Participants need not have prior exposure to Python.

    Dr Oscar Perez-Concha is a health data scientist with over 15 years’ experience in machine learning and statistical modelling. Oscar currently works as a Lecturer at the Centre for Big Data Research in Health (CBDRH), UNSW Sydney. His research focuses on answering questions related to health and healthcare, using statistical and machine learning methods on large electronic health record datasets. This is to identify and explore outcomes for these patient groups, improve patient care and streamline clinical processes. Oscar is also passionate about teaching and supervising students. In 2018, he developed an introductory course to Machine Learning which he convenes and teaches as part of the UNSW Master of Science in Health Data Science, the first such program in the southern hemisphere.
