This virtual workshop, which is presented by the Centre de recherches mathématiques (CRM) StatLab and supported by CANSSI, will showcase best practices in thoughtful and ethical handling of demographic data. A particular focus will be common questions that arise in the analysis of variables on race, ethnicity, sexuality, and disability. These include the challenges presented by small cell sizes, considerations of inequality in outcomes, and discussion of how statistical analyses can be used to raise questions about such inequities in society. The workshop will focus on methodological and applied concerns, giving attendees immediately useful and actionable advice.
The event organizers are Dr. Erica Moodie (McGill University) and Dr. Michael Wallace (University of Waterloo). Speakers include Dr. Rubab Arim and Dr. Evelyne Bougie (Statistics Canada, Social Analysis and Modelling Division), Dr. AJ Lowik (Centre for Gender and Sexual Health Equity), Dr. Irene Chen (University of California, Berkeley and San Francisco), and Dr. Emma Pierson (Jacobs Technion-Cornell Institute).
