Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2023, $2,500)

This entry proposes to use multi-level regression with post-stratification (MRP) and validates its use with a series of simulations. MRP is a robust methodology for generating small area estimations with relatively small sample sizes -- even in geographies without any survey responses. 

Team members included Joshua McCrain, Kaylyn Jackson Schiff, Ian Adams, and Daniel S. Schiff.

This entry won fifth prize in the category 1 nonprobability survey competition.
