Tate Talks: Racial Orders and Statistical Methodology
October 19, 2015 @ 12:15 pm - 1:30 pm
Presentation by Mosi Ifatunji, PhD One of the most common practices in the social and professional sciences is the under theorization of race in multivariate statistical models. This practice results in findings that are, at best, non-informative, and at worst, complicit in the maintenance of white supremacy. This lecture reviews these specification errors and provides a theoretical perspective for the inclusion of race in multivariate statistical models. It concludes with practical suggestions for research practitioners that include race in their models.
