Connecting Boundaries: Merging Administrative & Geographic Data Using SHRUG
The CASI-India Data Seminars Series features Rukmini S. (Independent Data Journalist; CASI Fall 2022 Visiting Fellow) in conversation with various data experts.
The CASI Data Seminar Series 2023 is practitioner-focused, aimed at researchers, students, academics, journalists, those in government, and private firms who use data in their work, and would like to be exposed to an exciting dataset with which to work. Pre- and post-session handouts will consolidate knowledge for all attendees. Every month, a leading practitioner will present on a relatively new or under-used dataset that he/she has deep working knowledge of, followed by audience Q&A.
