Center for Statistics and the Social Sciences [Washington University] Working Paper: “Use and Communication of Probabilistic Forecasts,” by Adrian E. Raftery (Working Paper No. 145, August 2014, .pdf format, 26p.).

Abstract:

Probabilistic forecasts are becoming more and more available. How should they be used and communicated? What are the obstacles to their use in practice? I review experience with five problems where probabilistic forecasting played an important role. This leads me to identify five types of potential users: Low Stakes Users, who don’t need probabilistic forecasts; General Assessors, who need an overall idea of the uncertainty in the forecast; Change Assessors, who need to know if a change is out of line with expectatations; Risk Avoiders, who wish to limit the risk of an adverse outcome; and Decision Theorists, who quantify their loss function and perform the decision-theoretic calculations. This suggests that it is important to interact with users and to consider their goals. The cognitive research tells us that calibration is important for trust in probability forecasts, and that it is important to match the verbal expression with the task. The cognitive load should be minimized, reducing the probabilistic forecast to a single percentile if appropriate. Probabilities of adverse events and percentiles of the predictive distribution of quantities of interest seem often to be the best way to summarize probabilistic forecasts. Formal decision theory has an important role, but in a limited range of applications.

A. “Private Defined Benefit Pension Plans in the U.S. National Accounts: Accrual Measures for the 2013 Comprehensive Revision,” by Dylan G. Rassier (August 2014, .pdf format, 33p.).

With the comprehensive revision of the U.S. National Income and Product Accounts published in July 2013, the U.S. Bureau of Economic Analysis introduced new accrual-based measures of income generated by defined benefit (DB) pension plans. In addition to the improved measurement, BEA introduced a new DB pension subsector and a new set of tables that provide a complete picture of transactions conducted in the DB pension subsector. Separate tables were introduced for each sector of employers that sponsor DB plans: business or private sector, state and local government sector, and federal government sector. This paper summarizes the methodology for each of the estimated series included in the table for DB plans sponsored by business or private sector employers (i.e., private plans). In addition, the paper provides general background information on DB pension plans and summarizes the DB pension subsector and the related table for private DB plans.

Inter-American Development Bank Working Paper: “Mind the Gap: Bridging the Perception and Reality of Crime Rates with Information,” by Martin Ardanaz, Ana Corbacho, and Mauricio Ruiz-Vega (IDB-WP- 530, August 2014, .pdf format, 26p.).

Abstract:

Gains from government crime-reducing programs are not always visible to the average citizen. The media overexpose crime events, but the absence of crime rarely makes the news, increasing the risk that citizen may have inaccurate perceptions of security. Through a survey experiment carried out in Bogota, Colombia, a city that experienced a substantial reduction in homicides over the last decade, as well as a noticeable drop in robberies, this paper tests the effect that communicating objective crime trends could have on such perceptions. The results show that information improves perceptions of safety and police effectiveness, and lowers distrust in the police. However, the information treatment is not able to impact those with biased priors, and tends to weaken over time. A more active and regular engagement with citizens regarding these trends is needed to bridge the gap between perception and reality.

Abstract:

This paper reconsiders the Polish wage curve using individual data from the Polish Labor Force Survey (LFS) at the 16 NUTS2 level allowing for spatial spillovers between regions. In addition it estimates the total and gender-specific regional unemployment rate elasticities on individual wages. The paper finds significant spatial unemployment spillovers across Polish regions. In addition, it finds that the results for the Polish wage curve are sensitive to genderspecific regional unemployment rates. This is especially true for women.

Center for Research on Child Wellbeing [Princeton University] Working Papers:

A. “Nonresident Fathers’ Involvement after a Nonmarital Birth: Exploring Differences by Race/Ethnicity,” by Calvina Ellerbe, Jerrett Jones, and Marcia Carlson (WP14-07-FF, August 2014, .pdf format, 33p.).

Abstract:

Despite the higher prevalence of nonmarital childbearing among racial/ethnic minorities, there is limited evidence about differences in unmarried father involvement across race/ethnic groups. Using data from the Fragile Families and Child Wellbeing Study (N=2,534), we evaluate racial/ethnic variation in father involvement after a nonmarital birth for nonresident fathers. Since nonresident father involvement typically requires coordinating with the mother, we evaluated involvement measures related to the father-child relationship (time and engagement) as well as measures related to the mother-father relationship vis-à-vis their common child (sharing responsibilities and coparenting). Black fathers were significantly more likely to spend time and engage in activities with their children as compared to Hispanic fathers-but not White fathers. With regard to the mother-father parenting interaction, Black fathers exhibited significantly higher levels of shared responsibility and positive coparenting with mothers than either White or Hispanic fathers. The low level of involvement among Hispanic fathers is notable, and future research should address possible reasons for this outcome.

B. “Patterns and Predictors of Coparenting after Unmarried Parents Part,” by Julia Goldberg and Marcia Carlson (WP14-06-FF, August 2014, .pdf format, 26p.).

Abstract:

Nonmarital childbearing has increased dramatically during the past several decades, and the majority of unmarried couples will break up while their child is still young. As a result, many children will be raised by their biological parents living apart, ideally working together as effective co-parents. In this paper, we use data from the Fragile Families and Child Wellbeing Study (N = 1,193) to describe the trajectories of coparenting over six years following the end of a nonmarital relationship and to identify individual and interpersonal characteristics associated with better coparenting over time. Results from growth mixture models suggest that there are four primary trajectories of coparenting over time, and results from multinomial logit models show that couples’ race/ethnicity, maternal health, and parents’ relationship and fertility characteristics are the most salient predictors of coparenting trajectories. These results highlight the heterogeneity of parents’ interaction vis-à-vis their common child after a nonmarital union dissolves and point to the challenges of supporting families and children amidst high instability.

Center for Statistics and the Social Sciences [Washington University] Working Paper: “Online Information Behaviors During Disaster Events: Roles, Routines, and Reactions,” by Harrison T. Reeder, Tyler McCormick, and Emma Spiro (Working Paper No. 144, 2014, .pdf format, 21p.).

Abstract:

Social media and Internet-based messaging systems are increasingly important platforms for risk communication. A global audience turns to these tools to seek, disseminate, and curate time-sensitive, emergency information during periods of crisis. Moreover, emergency management organizations report adopting these tools to augment their typical public information functions. Here, we use unsupervised machine learning methods and text analysis to explore online communications from a set of state and Federal emergency management-related organizations over a period of 15 months. We compare communication during
routine, non-event periods with communication during significant disaster events in order to evaluate di erences in the roles these organizations play. Findings indicate that communications from emergency management organizations align based on functional roles during routine situations, but during crisis events communication strategies converge on a mutual objective. These results have important practical consequences for organizational learning within this environment and could inform social media policies for emergency responders.
