Call 24: CELSI-WageIndicator Data Forum on Data Pooling: Opportunities and Challenges

Published on July 30, 2019


The Data Forum on Data Pooling: Opportunities and Challenges, 10-11. October 2019

The Data Forum will focus on the topic of pooling salary survey data from multiple sources. The possibilities of data pooling for research will be discussed and state-of-the art research methods will be presented. Data combining can be performed on multiple data sets, but it poses challenges related to the dimensions of time, scales, groups, variances, variables or levels of observation. These opportunities and challenges, along with the possible biases and methods of alleviating them in online survey data, will also be addressed during the data forum.

In case you are interested, please contact CELSI has limited funds to cover accommodation and travel expenses.
