PANJAAPOR’s 2015 spring event, held on March 24 at the Annenberg School for Communication at the University of Pennsylvania, was a great success according to all who attended.
Nearly 50 chapter members and guests were treated to presentations by plenary speaker Larry Eichel, Director of the Philadelphia Research Initiative at the Pew Charitable Trusts and student paper competition winners Elizabeth Kantor, Ying-Chao Kao, and Jacob Goldin, and a light reception.
Kantor of Rutgers, this year’s first place winner of the student paper competition, will represent PANJAAPOR at the National AAPOR conference by participating in the local chapter top student paper award panel. The title of her paper is: “Examining Best Practices for Sampling and Weighting Dual Frame Surveys.”
Larry Eichel’s presentation on Pew’s research in Philadelphia was enjoyed by all, especially his journalist’s take on polling, the Initiative’s research on the city’s libraries and changing middle class, as well as the lively question and answer session that followed.
