Free Workshop on the 2014 Survey of Income & Program Participation (SIPP)

Led by experts from the U.S. Census Bureau, this workshop will introduce participants to the use of microdata from the re-engineered 2014 "Survey of Income and Program Participation (SIPP)" and provide hands-on applications to prepare them to conduct their own SIPP-based research project.

The SIPP is a panel survey containing detailed measures of employment, health insurance, disability, child care, wealth and assets, program participation, and other topics. It is used to estimate the effectiveness of existing federal, state, and local programs; to estimate future costs and coverage for government programs, such as the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP, formerly food stamps); and to provide improved statistics on the distribution of income and measures of economic well-being in the country.

Workshop dates and location: September 18-21, 2017 in Washington, D.C.
Application deadline: July 31, 2017

Henry "Hank" Heitowit Scholarship

A scholarship fund has been established in honor of Henry “Hank” Heitowit, who served as Director of the Summer Program from 1981 to 2007. Under Hank’s leadership, the Program developed into a one-of-a-kind learning experience that offers not only wide-ranging and superbly taught courses in analytical methods, but also a uniquely supportive, informal, and inclusive environment.

Every year, a sizable number of former Summer Program participants want to come back to the Program to strengthen their research capabilities. But, for a variety of reasons, many are unable to do so. Current ICPSR Summer Program Director Saundra Schneider and former Director William Jacoby established the Henry “Hank” Heitowit Scholars Fund to help people in this situation and to honor Hank’s several decades of devoted service to the Summer Program and its participants.

Learn more about the Henry “Hank” Heitowit Scholars Fund and how you can help sustain the Heitowit Scholarship.
