WYSO is partnering with Stats and Stories, a podcast produced at Miami University.

For the last several years the US Census Bureau has been gearing up for its count of the American population. Researchers have been working out sampling strategies as well as what types of questions Americans will be asked. One of the concerns going into the 2020 Census is the possibility of miscounts, which could impact everything from representation in Congress, to federal funding for a variety of projects. Assessing the miscount risk is the focus of this episode of Stats and Stories. Rosemary Pennington is joined by regular panelist John Bailer, Chair of Miami’s Statistics Department. Their guest is Rob Santos, the Vice President and Chief Methodologist at the Urban Institute, a nonprofit research organization focused on issues of public policy. Recently released is a report assessing possible miscounts in the 2020 Census, and Santos is one of the report’s authors.

As the years fly by I like to pause at the end of each one to reflect upon the things that have happened during each year. I'll compile lists. For the past 15 years I have been writing book reviews for the Cox Ohio newspapers and each December I will share lists of my favorite books divided by whether they were fiction or non-fiction titles. During the decade that I was the music director at WYSO I would compile an annual list of my 100 favorite albums from each year. I do love making lists and sharing them.
