ResearchHack 3.0

Sponsored by

ResearchHack (RH) is AAPOR’s very own version of the hackathon, originated by software companies to foster collaboration and innovation. The focus of RH 3.0 will be the U.S. Census Bureau’s Planning Database (PDB), which provides selected 2010 Census and American Community Survey demographic and socioeconomic estimates at various levels of geography and includes area-level Low Response Score (LRS) estimates. Hackers will be asked to identify possible uses of the PDB in survey research and develop a framework for user-friendly tools/apps to facilitate using the PDB. Hackers will present their ideas to our esteemed panel of judges, Jennifer Hunter Childs, Kathleen Kephart, and Peter Miller, at a special AAPOR session moderated by Trent Buskirk.
