Thanks to survey research we have a greater understanding of public opinion and behavior, but designing effective surveys can often be challenging. This presentation by Dr. Dino P. Christenson will introduce essential concepts in the design of surveys and will highlight the potential for error at various stages in the process. Faculty from all disciplines are welcome. Dino P. Christenson is an Assistant Professor of Political Science and a Junior Faculty Fellow at the Hariri Institute for Computational Science & Engineering. He studies American political behavior and quantitative methods with a focus on the context in which individuals and organizations receive and react to political information. He has broad methodological interests as well, including survey research design, longitudinal data models, Bayesian analysis, social network analysis, and causal interference.
