The workshop is organized in a form of a “competition to start up research”: teams of data scientists creatively tackle data problems and provide a data analytics solution. The work should be in the form of a policy paper. Policy papers usually address a non-academic audience, such as an official, agency, or organization. They may begin by diagnosing a particular issue or situation, data and typically argue for a solution that will address that issue or situation. Evidence in support of a position is crucial. Each team should therefore include the initial problem/issue, the results of the analysis done, finally addressing the limitations and potentialities. The main goal of the teams will be to develop the best solution for comparing living conditions and/or youth unemployment among EU regions by using the Public microdata for the European Union Statistics on Income and Living Conditions (EU-SILC) available at https://ec.europa.eu/eurostat/web/microdata/statistics-on-income-and-living-conditions.
The event is organized within the Jean Monnet Chair “Small Area methods for Multidimensional Poverty and living conditions Indicators in EU (SAMPIEU)” co-funded to the Department of Economics and Management, chair holder Prof. Monica Pratesi.
