Presenter abstract:


In this Lunch and Learn, Dr. Matt Dube will discuss an innovative approach to analyzing potential redistricting plans against counterfactual samples, an important step in the decadal process of reapportionment which the country will be engaged in for the next year. This talk will detail research that has been conducted for the past five years between the University of Maine, the University of Maine at Augusta, and MIT.
