Current Innovations in Probability-based Household Internet Panel Research
Washington DC
Wednesday February 26th and Thursday February 27th, 2020

As online panels are rapidly becoming a familiar tool for research, the need to ensure high-quality, representative data collection and analysis is also increasingly clear.  The first “Current Innovations in Probability-based Household Internet Panel Research (CIPHER)” conference will be organized by the Center for Economic and Social Research (CESR) of the University of Southern California and hosted by the Global Financial Literacy Excellence Center (GFLEC) at the George Washington University on the 21st of February, 2019.

We are thrilled to announced our second CIPHER conference, to take place on 26-27 February 2020 in Washington, D.C. This year, we are broadening the scope of the event to ensure inclusion of more international perspectives, and that voices from the policy, non-governmental and private sectors are more fully represented.  

CIPHER 2020 will focus on new approaches to the design of probability-based Internet and mixed-mode panels, their applications in research and policy, and the potential and challenges ahead, specifically: 

  • Survey methodology and practice 
  • Data management and linkages
  • Developments in analysis techniques
  • Substantive applications of research 
  • Combination of data collected with wearable devices with self-reports
  • Naturally occurring data
  • Experiments
  • Machine learning
  • Surveys on Financial Literacy
