David Marker on Novel Methods to Combine Disparate Data for Diabetes Estimates

What innovative methods can researchers use to maximize administrative data, like clinical and claims data, with survey data? David Marker, Ph.D., a Westat Associate Director, will answer that question and more at his presentation at the Washington Statistical Society Seminars on March 19, 2019.

  • Not always unbiased
  • Frequently don’t cover the entire population of interest

Dr. Marker will describe

  • Operational issues in combining these data sources
  • Statistical issues of adjusting for non-representative data
