The session will provide guidance about the datasets and tools used in gridded population surveys, and reviews three real-world comparisons between traditional census surveys and gridded population surveys in Uruguay, Nigeria, and Nepal. Survey statisticians in government, the private sector, academia, and the non-profit sector should find this session informative whether or not they plan to use gridded population sampling.
Dana R ThomsonThe emphasis of Dr. Thomson research is identification of populations who are under-represented in household surveys and other official data, and development of tools and protocols to improve population data accuracy. Her research is focused on methods to address decay in LMIC survey accuracy due to major social shifts that have modified household configuration and behaviors over the last four decades, including urbanization and increased mobility. Dr. Thomson has helped to pioneer the field of gridded population sampling, and recently published a manual with step-by-step tutorials for Designing and Implementing Gridded Population Surveys.
