89. Cute cat
reminds me of a friend of mine. And his life is safe - you can reassure him regarding my views on the precinct level data by referring him to my paper here:

http://www.geocities.com/lizzielid/WPEpaper.pdf

In order to establish the proportion of variance in differential nonresponse that can be accounted for by known independent variables, the use of an unconfounded index of bias as the dependent variable, such as the one described, would seem to be essential. In the case of the 2004 exit polls, it would therefore be of interest to know what proportion of total variance in genuine within-precinct bias could be accounted for by the factors postulated in the E-M report, and whether, after thus accounting for known methodological factors, any precincts/states proved to be statistical outliers that might indicate the possible contribution of vote-count corruption to the exit-poll error.


It's a bit dry, sorry about that, but most cats are dry academic types in my experience. Unlike dogs.

But as I've said, auto, I'm not going to write to anyone to request the release of data I do not think should be released, unblurred.

(And when was I in the Washington Post?)
