About the Presentation:

The past several decades have seen technological advancements that have facilitated the collection of data from a wide variety of new sources in service of fundamental questions in population-based research. As costs have grown for the collection of sample-based data systems and surveys, researchers have sought new ways to augment the applicability of existing data not originally designed for research purposes. Combined with creative analytical techniques, these innovative data sources have contributed to a growing knowledge base in human behavior, interaction, outcomes, and inequalities. This panel will highlight advancements in data collection from innovative sources and novel collection techniques and explore applications to questions in demography and population studies. Panelists will discuss both their specific applications of innovative data sources as well as conceptual considerations of the use of new data for demography in the 21st century.
