Please join us for an informative and interactive presentation on crafting questions to measure Sexual Orientation and Gender Identity (SOGI) in surveys. SOGI is measured in a variety of ways across surveys and research studies, but which SOGI question, or set of questions, is best for your study or target study population? Justine Bulgar-Medina, Ph.D. is a Research Methodologist at NORC and has dedicated much time and research to address this question. Justine will share her knowledge on the evolution of work on measurement error in SOGI populations in the MAPOR fall webinar on October 27th.
About Justine: In addition to her work at NORC, Justine also teaches courses in research methods and public policy at Northwestern. Prior to joining NORC & Northwestern, Justine was a faculty member at Merrimack College where she taught courses in research methods, statistics, public policy and criminology. Justine completed her doctoral work in Sociology & Survey Research at the University of Massachusetts in Boston. Justine’s work focuses on looking at measurement error in surveys, especially measurement error in minority and multiple minority areas, with a focus on culturally responsive and inclusive approaches. She has presented on these topics at several conferences (including MAPOR and AAPOR), as well as offered short courses for UNC’s Odum Institute. Along with other researchers in the field Justine has been active in organizing AAPOR panels on SOGI populations.
