Upcoming Workshop: Using Scanner Data for Food Economics Research—Resources and Approaches for New and Advanced Researchers

Dates: August 3-4, 2022 (immediately following the AAEA meetings)

Location: Anaheim, CA (at a location near the Marriott where the AAEA meetings will be held) with the option to attend virtually

Please mark your calendars for an upcoming workshop sponsored by the U.S. Department of Agriculture, Economic Research Service (ERS) for new and advanced researchers using scanner data for conducting food economics research. The workshop will provide an overview of IRI store and household scanner data including datasets that can be linked for analyses, introduce researchers to new data products available from ERS that can enhance analyses, provide an opportunity to learn about ongoing research using scanner data, and allow for discussion on how your research questions can be addressed using these data. The workshop will also provide an overview of possible funding sources to pursue research projects using scanner data. The workshop will be particularly useful for graduate students and early career researchers who would like to integrate scanner data into their research plans. Sessions will also be useful for more advanced users interested in learning about new datasets and approaches. More details on the program and registration options will be available in January 2022. If you have questions, please contact Mary Muth at muth@rti.org, Anne Byrne at Anne.Byrne@usda.gov, or Matthew MacLachlan at matthew.maclachlan@usda.gov.
