Epp to Speak at KU Libraries Lecture Series Event: April 2

Thursday, April 2, 2015 at 3:30–5 p.m.
Watson Library, Third Floor West, 1425 Jayhawk Boulevard
Lawrence, Kansas

This lecture series event will feature two speakers on the topic of data:

The Kansas City Research Data Center: A Resource for Researchers

Donna Ginther, professor of Economics and director of Center for Science, Technology and Economic Policy, will discuss the Census Research Data Center (RDC) that is being built in the Federal Reserve Bank of Kansas City. Ginther will focus on the data that could be made available in the RDC and how to gain access to the data in the secure research facility.

What New Forms of Data Reveal About Racial Disparities in Police Stops

Chuck Epp, professor in the School of Public Affairs and Administration, will discuss studies of racial disparities in police stops based on data from police citations. The Kansas City police stops study conducted by Charles Epp, Steven Maynard-Moody, and Don Haider-Markel used a survey of drivers and their narratives of police stops. The result was a new understanding of the sources of racial disparities in these stops.

This event is free and open to the public. Light refreshments will be served.
