Ofer Harel, Ph.D.

The Central Arkansas Chapter of the American Statistical Association (CASA) is sponsoring a one-day short course about the Analysis of Incomplete Data on Friday, April 28, 2017, from 9 a.m. – 4:30 p.m. in the College of Public Health building, room 8240.

Biased results and inefficient estimates are just some of the risks of incorrectly dealing with incomplete data, a common problem in applied research. This course will emphasize practical implementation of proposed strategies for dealing with missing data, including discussion of software to implement recommended procedures.

The instructor is Ofer Harel, Ph.D., professor of statistics at the University of Connecticut. Harel received his doctorate in statistics in 2003 from the Pennsylvania State University and post-doctoral training in biostatistics at the University of Washington. He has served as a biostatistical consultant nationally and internationally since 1997 and has been involved with a variety of research fields including Alzheimer’s, diabetes, nutrition, HIV/AIDS, and alcohol and drug abuse prevention.

The cost to attend the short course is $90 for CASA members, $100 for non-members, and $35 for full time students. Lunch is included in the registration fee.  See printable registration form.
