Apply for Summer Program Workshop by April 28
A *summer workshop* about CPES will be held June 16-18, 2008 in Ann Arbor, pending funding. Enrollment in the course is limited to 25 participants selected for their methodological qualifications and their ability to contribute to the substantive area. Applications must be received by April 28 and include a vita and cover letter summarizing research interests, course objectives, and experience. Instructors will include those most familiar with CPES and material will cover instrumentation, diagnostic algorithms and other constructed variables, sample design and weighting, techniques for the appropriate analysis of complex sample survey data, and concrete analytic examples. The CPES investigators will be invited to join a discussion in-person and via video-conference. There is no cost to attend the workshop.
