Sample Bias: A Threat to Inclusive Data
Sample bias often only takes up a small section of a textbook, but its consequences are by no means small. Join research professional Elizabeth Martin as she shares how an undergrad project studying instructions for juries on memory imperfections showcases the dangers of sample bias and the implications in our daily lives. You can also expect a refresher on what exactly is sample bias, how it can undermine our data, how to avoid it, and what all of this means for a researcher in 2020 and beyond.
Webinar attendees will:
- Review a case study on how sample selection impacts research outcomes
- Review the impact of sample bias in real-life situations, not just in the research process
- Join a discussion about how we as researchers have a responsibility to make sure all voices are heard
