Harry Ganzeboom will give a presentation on missing values:
Missing values: what is there beyond pairwise and listwise deletion?
“I discuss and compare several modes of missing values treatment in a model that predicts educational and occupation attainment in Suriname in which both mother’s and father’s characteristics (their education and occupation) are incompletely observed, for different reasons”
PARIS research colloquium on March 18th 1-2 pm, Z-531
Martijn Huisman will present his work “Resilience in Aging Migrants; A new cohort in the Longitudinal Aging Study Amsterdam”
“In this seminar, I will describe a new endeavor in the LASA study: data collection among a cohort of older Turkish and Moroccan migrants. Theoretical underpinnings concern the notion of resilience, leading to the research question: To what degree will these groups, characterized by a disadvantaged position in economic, health and social resources, be able to age successfully in the Netherlands? Very soon a PhD will start on this research project in the department of Sociology”
