        Don't act like a burglar - collecting data on who
                        lives in a house





                          Paul Garcia
                    Hertfordshire County Council







Abstract: 
In this presentation Paul shall describe his role as a
population forecaster at Hertfordshire County Council, and why, in
2002, he was moved to apply to the RSS for funding to carry out a
project to collect data on the ages of residents of recent housing
developments.  The process and problems of organising such a survey, 
some of the incidents that occurred, and some of the peculiarities of the 
general public will be described.  The resulting
models will be demonstrated, with some comments on their efficacy,
and some comments about the acceptability of these results generally.




Speaker: 
Paul did a first degree with the Open University and trained as a 
mathematics teacher in the early 1980s.  He worked in
schools and further education colleges, and completed a Master's
degree in mathematics in 1995.   In 1996 Paul took a year out to do a
Master's degree in information and knowledge technology, with a view
to a change of career, but returned to teaching until 2001, when he
took up his present post as Senior Property Review Officer
(Demographics) at Hertfordshire County Council. Paul completed a PhD in
the History of Mathematics in 2006.  In 2003 Paul was the Royal
Statistical Society Campion Fellow.




Directions: (From Central Cambridge) Turn right off Hills Road into the 
Addenbrooke's site then turn left at the hospital roundabout onto Robinson
Way. Follow Robinson Way until you see an access road on the left signed 
'Forvie Site' (but note that the sign is on your right). Turn into the 
access road and follow signs - first to the Institute and then to the 
Large Seminar Room. There is ample car parking. Arrivals after 7:45 can gain 
admittance by contacting the secretary on 07761769436.



Provisional Next Meetings:

'Working as a medical statistician in academia and industry: how do

October - Simon Tavare (Applied Maths & Theoretical Physics).

Supper: Some members eat regularly in the University Centre before
each talk meeting in the downstairs bar at 5-30pm. Feel free to join them.
