Center for Statistics and the Social Sciences [University of Washington] Working Paper: “Dyadic data analysis with amen,” by Peter Hoff (Working Paper No. 153, August 2015, .pdf format, 48p.).

Abstract:

Dyadic data on pairs of objects, such as relational or social network data, often exhibit strong statistical dependencies. Certain types of second-order dependencies, such as degree heterogeneity and reciprocity, can be well-represented with additive random effects models. Higher-order dependencies, such as transitivity and stochastic equivalence, can often be represented with multiplicative effcts. The amen package for the R statistical computing environment provides estimation and inference for a class of additive and multiplicative random effects models for ordinal, continuous, binary and other types of dyadic data. The package also provides methods for missing, censored and fixed-rank nomination data, as well as longitudinal dyadic data. This tutorial illustrates the amen package via example statistical analyses of several of these different data types.

Urban Insitute Website: “The Prison Population Forecaster” (August 2015).

“Our Prison Population Forecaster can estimate the effect, by state, of policies that aim to reduce prison admissions and length of stay for the most common types of offenses. The tool currently uses data from 15 states, representing nearly 40 percent of the national prison population, to forecast population trends and project the impact of changes on rates of admission or lengths of stay in prison. Using the tool, we can see that in some states, limiting prison admissions to only new crimes and diverting parole and probation revocations will substantially reduce the number of people behind bars. Other states can stem prison growth by tackling how they address drug and property offenses. Still others may discover that modest reductions in time served for violent offenses are necessary. This forecasting tool paves the way for a more productive conversation about the need for tailored reforms that address the unique drivers of mass incarceration in each jurisdiction.”

University of Wisconsin Institute for Research on Poverty Working Paper: “Income Volatility in U.S. Households with Children: Another Growing Disparity between the Rich and the Poor?” by Pamela A. Morris, Heather D. Hill, Lisa A. Gennetian, Chris Rodrigues, and Sharon Wolf (DP 1429-15, July 2015, .pdf format, 33p.).

Abstract:

In this paper, we sought to document household income volatility as experienced by children over time, as one understudied aspect of household economic circumstances that might contribute to observed socioeconomic differences in children’s achievement. Our analysis of six panels of the nationally representative Survey of Income and Program Participation (SIPP) across a 25-year period reveal that income volatility may be an additional factor contributing to the gap between the achievement of rich and poor children: We find that households with children at the 10th percentile of income have experienced increasing volatility across the last 25 years while their affluent peers at the 90th percentile have experienced declining income volatility. Our sensitivity analyses show that these findings are robust to a number of differing analytic approaches and are not due to the changing racial/ethnic composition of low-income households over this same time period.
