PSID 2021 Data User Training Workshop

The Panel Study of Income Dynamics is accepting applications for its annual data user training summer workshop. The workshop will be virtual this year.

  • Dates: June 14-18, 2021
  • Schedule: 10am – 4pm EDT daily (Class schedule alternates recorded lecture content and live class meetings to prevent Zoom fatigue.)

Description: This virtual five-day workshop will orient participants to the content and structure of the Panel Study of Income Dynamics, its special topics modules, and the PSID Child Development Supplement and PSID Transition into Adulthood Supplement. The workshop pairs instructional sessions led by experienced PSID researchers and staff with guided lab sessions in which users construct their own analytic data files.

Format: Activities will be divided between recorded lecture content and live (virtual classroom) discussion and labs, allowing ample time for breaks. Additional office hours will be available to allow participants to meet with instructors individually.

Course management will be through Canvas and live class meetings will be held on Zoom. The workshop is hosted by ICPSR, University of Michigan.

Intended audience: The workshop is open to predoctoral students, postdoctoral fellows, college and university faculty, and professional researchers.

Deadline: Applications received by April 16 will be given priority for enrollment. There is a $100 workshop enrollment fee for admitted participants.
