I recently had the honor of giving a talk with Adam Glynn at The Future of Big Data Symposium at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. The talk, entitled “Challenges of Big Data in the Social Sciences”, can be viewed here:

In the talk, we presented results from two papers (in addition to broader reflections on big data in the social sciences):

  • A paper with Adam Glynn estimating the effect of early voting on turnout in Florida using front-door difference-in-differences techniques;
  • A working paper with Alexander Hertel-Fernandez using text analysis to examine the success of the American Legislative Exchange Council in introducing and enacting model legislation across the American states.
