Chapter Spotlight: MAPOR‚Äč
MAPOR recently convened its 44th annual conference, our largest ever at 256 attendees! The conference featured a keynote address on "Politics, Privacy and Data for Policy in U.S. Censuses" by Barbara Anderson of the University of Michigan. We also had a pedagogy hour presented by Justine Bulgar-Medina of NORC at the University of Chicago on "The Measurement of Sexual Orientation and Gender Identity in Survey Research," as well as a short course on "Survey Weighting" by Brady West of the University of Michigan.  The conference also featured four different panels, a working group, and papers and posters presented from almost 50 different institutions based on first authorship alone. We were very pleased to introduce Tom W. Smith of NORC at the University of Chicago as our newest MAPOR fellow this year, in addition to new and continued student-focused activities.
