New Data Science methods and mass collaborations pose both exciting opportunities and important challenges for social science research. This panel will explore the relationship between these new approaches and traditional survey methodology. Can they coexist, or even enrich one another? Matthew Salganik is one of the lead organizers of the Fragile Families Challenge, which uses data science approaches such as predictive modeling, mass collaboration, and ensemble techniques. Jeremy Freese is co-PI of the General Social Survey and of a project on collaborative research in the social sciences. Colter Mitchell has conducted innovative work combining biological data and methods with Fragile Families and other survey data sets.

Sponsored by the Computational Social Science Rackham Interdisciplinary Workshop and the Population Studies Center's Freedman Fund.
