Opportunities for LAPOP Graduate Students

LAPOP graduate students are afforded many unique opportunities, including:

 

In Their Own Words

"Working as a research assistant for LAPOP provided me the opportunity to see a lot of the work that happens behind the curtains of a large research project, and to personally contribute to the continuing development of the AmericasBarometer and other research projects. LAPOP's director and staff work closely with graduate students to assist in our training as researchers by developing a diverse set of skills, from survey sampling to data collection issues to advanced statistical analysis." -Gui Russo, Vanderbilt PhD Student

"My experience with LAPOP has led to a wide variety of opportunities. In my first year, I learned a lot about using the AmericasBarometer data, and started working with it regularly for class. During LAPOP group meetings, we also talked a lot about question design and discussed fellow students' Insights report drafts and working papers, which was a great way to get familiar with, 1. what questions are in the data, 2. the academic process for vetting projects, and 3. best practices for analyzing survey data (especially the AB data). " -Mollie Cohen, Vanderbilt PhD Candidate
