Winona State University (WSU) received REU funding from the American Statistical Association / National Science Foundation for Summer 2017. (Grant No. DMS-1560332) WSU worked collaboratively with the Minnesota Population Center to develop appropriate projects for the REU. This work includes the creation of a single index to measure household assets using data from International Public Use Microdata Series-International (IPUMS-I). The development of this index was challenging due to the wide variety of measurements collected from country-to-country and year-to-year. This poster will include the outcomes from this work. In addition, the student authors will provide an overview of their REU experience at Winona State University.

Authors who are presenting talks have a * after their name.
