Timothy Triplett is a principal research associate and senior survey methodologist with the Statistical Methods Group at the Urban Institute, where his work primarily involves studies that include survey data collection, complex sample designs, and random experimental designs. He conducts methodological research addressing such issues as estimating nonresponse bias, weighting strategies, and imputation procedures. He works extensively with the decennial census, American Community Survey, and the Annual Social and Economic Supplement to the Current Population Survey, in order to create survey weights, impute for missing data, or analyze nonresponse for the numerous surveys collected for or by the Urban Institute.
