New Theodoridis Paper in Political Analysis

August 6, 2018

Prof. Alex Theodoridis’ paper "Worth Weighting? How to Think About and Use Weights in Survey Experiments" has just been published in Political Analysis. Congratulations to Prof Theodoridis and his co-authors!

The paper studies the use of sampling weights to adjust online survey experiments or representativeness, which is increasingly common in Political Science research. The authors formally develop a number of tools for analysing survey experiments, and use both simulations and real-world survey data to examine these tools. Surprisingly, the authors find that the use of weights is not particularly important for retrieving population-representative estimates of experimental effects, at least when the quality of the survey is reasonably high.
