Stan, Scalable Software for Bayesian Modeling

This award is to design, code, document, test, dissememinate, and maintain Stan, an extensible open-source software framework and compiler for efficient and scalable Bayesian statistical modeling. Stan is an extensible, open-source, cross-platform software framework for developing Bayesian statistical models. The first step in Bayesian modeling is setting up a full probability model for all quantities of interest. Stan facilitates this process by providing an expressive and extensible domain-specific programming language for specifying probabilistic models.

Solving Difficult Bayesian Computation Problems in Education Research with Stan

Some statistical models used in education research are complex. This complexity arises in part because the data structures that underlie these statistical models involve multiple nested (i.e., cross-classified multilevel models) and non-nested groupings (i.e., partially-nested designs). Another source of complexity in these models results from the fact that key variables, such as student achievement, can be measured only indirectly and are represented in the model by latent variables.

Using Multilevel Regression and Poststratification to Measure and Study Dynamic Public Opinion

This research project will develop techniques for using national survey data to estimate dynamic measures of public opinion across a variety of types of subnational units such as states, congressional districts, and state legislative districts. These techniques will allow researchers to generate accurate estimates of public opinion over time by fine-grained demographic-geographic-temporal subgroups. National surveys are designed to give good estimates of national public opinion at a particular point in time.

Collaborative Research: Multilevel Regression and Poststratification: A Unified Framework for Survey Weighted Inference

This research project will develop a unified framework for survey weighting through novel modifications of multilevel regression and poststratification (MRP) to incorporate design-based information into modeling. Real-life survey data often are unrepresentative due to selection bias and nonresponse. Existing methods for adjusting for known differences between the sample and population from which the sample is drawn have some advantages but also practical limitations.

Alliance Call for Joint Projects

The Alliance Call for Joint Projects are intended to support transatlantic projects of the highest quality, both in scientific research and collaborative teaching efforts, between faculty members of all disciplines within the Alliance network. The Alliance Call for Joint Projects aim to promote new efforts in joint research proposal development, pilot research, collaborative teaching endeavors, and other activities in order to create new transatlantic collaborative initiatives.

Graduate Research Fellowship Program for Criminal Justice Statistics

This program provides awards to accredited universities for doctoral research that uses criminal justice data or statistical series and focuses on crime, violence, and other criminal justice-related topics. BJS invests in doctoral education by supporting universities that sponsor students who demonstrate the potential to complete doctoral degree programs successfully in disciplines relevant to the mission of BJS, and who are in the final stages of
graduate study.
