Welcome to the home of the Chicago ASA!
The Chicago Chapter of the American Statistical Association was established to foster interest in statistical methods. We want to promote unity among analytical professionals, and aim to make information concerning statistical science available in order to stimulate research, and promote high professional standards. It is our hope to make statistics useful to practical affairs, for the advancement of society as a whole. We encourage participation and membership from students and professionals across all quantitative disciplines.

Statistics: the Human Vulnerability Diagnostic Tool (HVDT) and the
Global Slavery Index in the United States and Abroad"
This talk will provide an overview of the lessons learned from the
application of the Human Vulnerability Diagnostic Tool to human
trafficking of minors-both citizens and foreigners-in the United
States. What vulnerability factors are the most influential? We will
then explore the application of the model in Tennessee and discuss the
best practices of partners in the anti-trafficking field. Finally, we
will review the major findings of the 2016 Global Slavery Index and the
methodological improvements to this study resulting from a partnership
with the Gallup World Poll.
