DISIA Seminar

January 12, 2023 @ 12:00 - 13:00

Speaker: Fulvia Mecatti (Università degli Studi di Milano-Bicocca)

Title: A fresh look to Multiple Frame Surveys for a multi data source world

Abstract: Multiple Frame (MF) Surveys have been around since the 1960s as an effective tool to deal with traditional challenges in sample survey: to reduce costs and improve population coverage, to cope against “imperfect” (or even non-existent) sampling frame for not being able to directly representing the target population, and to increase sample size for sub-populations of interest. In recent years multiple-frame surveys are increasingly considered to deal with newer challenges and emerging needs in our multi data source world. In this seminar a fresh look to MF surveys will be given and to their potential to serve as an organising framework to untangle modern complex multi-structured data problems. Building upon the multiplicity approach as a simplified, unifying and principled approach to MF estimation, we will illustrate how the MF paradigm and reasoning can help with the general issue of integrate data from different sources, and in particular to produce good estimates upon complex panel data from large scale longitudinal surveys such as SHARE.

The seminar will be held on Thursday 12th of January 2023, in Aula 205 (ex 32) (DISIA – Viale Morgagni 59).
