The Data-Intensive Social Science Center presents its inaugural session of the DISSC Data Discovery and Open House series.
These informal sessions will introduce researchers to data acquired by Yale and available for use in academic work. Each session will highlight a selection of data resources focusing on what they are, how you can get access, and some insights on how the data can be used.
The session on May 3 will be facilitated by Shiro Kuriwaki and will focus on L2 Political.
These files of US registered voters include voter history and demographic data and are used widely in top journals. They are relevant to researchers in American Politics, Political Economy, and IPE, especially those who study mobilization, representation, and political geography.
The event is a great way to learn about the proprietary datasets that graduate students and researchers can leverage for their projects. These data are also used in concert with other data, such as public opinion or consumer panel data.
We welcome researchers to talk about their research, if you are using L2 data and would like to share your experience, let us know!
The agenda for May 3 includes:
- 10-11 Presentation and overviews of the data and Q&A
- 11-11:30 Time for additional questions, discussion, networking, and ideas for future sessions.
