During this seminar we will hear from four speakers whose research focusses on the health of population subgroups and who will discuss some of the challenges they face in their research. Paul Dietze will provide an overview of the SuperMIX study, a cohort of people who inject drugs in Melbourne, and the methods used to analyse data from this non-random sample; Kathryn Snow will discuss multi-sectoral data linkage research for vulnerable populations, such as people who have spent time in prison; George Disney will provide an overview of methods for classifying subpopulations, such as people with disabilities, in administrative datasets and large surveys; and Jane Freemantle will discuss ethical considerations when working with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. Talks will be followed by a panel discussion. Light refreshments will be served.
