LIfBi team member Dr. Sabine Zinn presents a method for modeling missing or wrong data concerning income questions at the World Congress of Sociology in Yokohama, Japan. 

Scientists from the fields of sociology, social sciences, and related fields convene for the World Congress in order to exchange views on the latest developments concerning sociology. The program is versatile. Among other things, latest findings from the fields of family, environmental, and political sociology, as well as methods of empirical social research are being presented. The nuclear catastrophe that took place in Fukushima in 2011 and its consequences will be an important item on the agenda.
