his July, we are focusing entirely on the utility of the Consumer Pyramids Household Survey in measuring mortality. We have two great research papers being presented as well as a seminar by us on how we collect mortality data. The aim of these presentations is to help users of CPHS data learn about other work happening in the community, and to understand what is possible with the data. We hope that many people from your institution will join us for all three events.
July 8 2021 at 8.30 PM IST: Anup Malani from The University of Chicago Law School andSabareesh Ramachandran from UC San Diego will present All-cause mortality during SARS-CoV-2 Pandemic in India. Their paper will be discussed by Chinmay Tumbe from IIM Ahmedabad.
- July 15, 2021 at 8.30 PM IST: Arvind Subramanian from Brown University’s Watson Insitute for International and Public Affairs, Abhishek Anand from the Harvard Kennedy School of Government and Justin Sandefur from the Center for Global Development will present Survey-Based Estimates of Excess Mortality in the Covid Pandemic. Their paper will be discussed by Murad Banaji from Middlesex University.
- July 22, 2021 at 8.30 PM IST: Kaushik Krishnan, Chief Economist, and Mahesh Vyas, MD and CEO of CMIE will talk about the Member Roster in CPHS. The CPHS member roster tracks information on individual members in the households that participate in CPHS. This is the primary source of data that is used by the authors of the papers being presented in July. It is also the source of the rich data that we capture on migration.
We look forward to seeing you in July. All our events are open to the public. If the time of the event does not work for you, signing up will ensure that you receive a link to the resources from the event such as a recording and slides.
