    Talk title: Perspectives on Sample Surveys. 

    Abstract: Sample surveys have developed over the last 100 years to be a major way of obtaining useful data about populations and processes in many situations. Theoretical and practical developments have had to respond to changing requirements and uses and been influenced by changes in data collection technology and behavioural changes in society. The lecture will consider some major historical developments and the issues and challenges currently facing the continued usefulness of sample surveys.

    Biography: David Steel is Director of the Centre for Sample Survey Methodology at the University of Wollongong. His theoretical research and applied projects focus on survey methodology, sample survey design and analysis methods for complex social, health and economic data. He has undertaken survey design and analysis projects with a number of national and international agencies. He learnt much of the art and science of sample surveys during his time in the methodology and industry divisions of the ABS. He has BSc (Hons) from the University of Adelaide, MSc in Statistics from ANU, and a PhD from the University of Southampton and is an elected member of the ISI.

    Statistical Society of Australia warmly invites you to a workshop on data visualisation with R, taught by Prof. Di Cook and Dr. Emi Tanaka.

    About the workshop:

    Data visualisation is a key statistical tool for effective communication and to understand aspects of data and models. The statistical language R is used widely for data analysis and visualization, e.g. the BBC Visual and Data Journalism team uses ggplot2 R-package to create production-ready charts. This workshop will teach you how to create production-ready graphics using the grammar of graphics implemented in ggplot2 R-package. In addition, the workshop will teach you how to construct more complex plots, including maps, and discuss inference for statistical graphics to understand if what we see in a plot is really there. The workshop will be hands-on with plenty of practical examples.

    About the presenters:

    Dianne Cook is Professor of Business Analytics at Monash University in Melbourne, Australia.  She is a world leader in data visualisation, especially the visualisation of high-dimensional data using tours with low-dimensional projections, and projection pursuit.  She is currently focusing on bridging the gap between exploratory graphics and statistical inference.  Di is a Fellow of the American Statistical Association, past editor of the Journal of Computational and Graphical Statistics, current editor of the R Journal,  elected Ordinary Member of the R Foundation, and elected member of the International Statistical Institute. 

    Emi Tanaka is a Lecturer in Statistics at Monash University and the Vice President of SSA Vic. She is currently working on a statistical theory for conducting inference using data plots and is an early career researcher in multi-level modelling, and experimental design. She is an experienced and enthusiastic R user and instructor, and regularly teaches university courses and workshops to the broader community on data visualisation, including ggplot2.

    Target audience:

    This workshop is suitable for those who know R but are not familiar or comfortable with using ggplot2 or would like a refresher on ggplot2. It is aimed for those that have familiarity with ggplot2 but would like to delve deeper into advanced plotting techniques, including interactive plots and animating plots, and using plots for inference.

    Statistics in the public eye: the case of predicting election outcome

    Prof. Simon Jackman
    the United States Studies Centre, the University of Sydney

    Abstract
    Predictive models of election outcomes – relying chiefly on published opinion polls – have been a leading example of statistical methods finding their way into media and popular discourse. After early successes, these models have been at the heart of “polling misses” in recent years across elections in the USA, Australia and the UK.

    Professor Jackman will examine these successes and failures, detailing the statistical models used to temporally aggregate and smooth poll-based estimates of voting intentions - a form of Hidden Markov Model.

    Professor Jackman will also discuss (a) generalisations and extensions of the model including estimating trends and discontinuities in the evolution of public opinion over election campaigns, spatial smoothing for multi-jurisdiction elections (e.g., parliamentary elections or the US Electoral College), (b) ex-post estimation of pollster biases and their causes, and (c) detecting under-dispersion or “herding” of published poll results. Examples will include recent Australian federal elections and US presidential elections. These examples hold important lessons for statisticians whose work is destined for consumption by journalists and the lay public.

    Biography
    Professor Simon Jackman is Chief Executive Officer of the United States Studies Centre. He graduated with first class Honours in Government from the University of Queensland and earned his doctorate at the University of Rochester and Princeton University.

    Professor Jackman’s research has appeared over the last 30 years in the leading journals of political science. He served as one of the Principal Investigators of the American National Election Studies, the world’s longest running and most authoritative survey of political behaviour and attitudes. He also served as an expert witness helping to secure verdicts against partisan gerrymandering in the United States.

    SSA and ABS are proudly presenting:

    Australian Bureau of Statistics                                        

    The ABS Symposium on Data Access and Privacy

    This symposium is about public data access and privacy and will bring together key stakeholders from the Australian Public Service and academia to consider recent developments and share experience in enabling data access for research while ensuring confidentiality.

    On day 1, we will hear panel discussions from international and Australian experts share their views on ‘the challenge of protecting privacy in public data’ and ‘the case for better access to public sector data’. The final session will be multiple breakout sessions of round table discussions focusing on ‘the future of data sharing’. On day 2, we will hear research and developments and practical experience in confidentiality in the public sector and academia. The presentations focus methods to ensure confidentiality in microdata and aggregate statistics.

    Day 1

    “The balance between privacy and openness in public data” 

    • 09:15-09:30 -Welcome- Dr David Gruen (The Australian Statistician, ABS) – bio

    • Opening: Dr. John M Abowd (Chief Scientist, USCB) – bio and CV

    Moderator: Dr David Gruen

    Focus: While public data is a powerful
    resource, we need to uphold public trust
    and prevent misuse. Discussion may include the problems of implementing
    protections while still releasing a useful product, and the cumulative risks that
    can be hard to measure and control.

    • Opening: Ms Deborah Anton (interim National Data Commissioner) – bio and Professor Felix Ritchie - bio
    • Moderator: Ms Teresa Dickinson (Deputy Australian Statistician, ABS) – bio

    Focus: Safe dissemination and sharing of public data enables a wide variety of
    researchers to deliver clear and measurable public benefits. The panel
    may discuss some of the outcomes that have resulted from existing data releases as well as potential future projects.


    Panel:
