Survey of Income and Program Participation Workshop
|Date||05/07/18 to 05/09/18|
|Location||811 Oswald Tower - Computer Lab|
We am pleased to announce that, in partnership with the U.S. Census Bureau, we will offer a training workshop in the use of the Survey of Income and Program Participation (SIPP) on May 7-9. The SIPP collects data and measures change for many topics including: economic well-being, family dynamics, education, assets, health insurance, childcare, and food security. It is unique because it is a longitudinal survey that has monthly information on respondents over about a four year period. There have been many of such SIPP panels from the 1980s to the present. For more information, see: https://www.census.gov/sipp/. Census Bureau staff (including program alumni) will come to Penn State and provide guidance on how to use this rich, complex source of data. Restricted-use versions of the data could also be accessed in the RDC environment.
