This webinar represents the first session of the CIVICA Applied Data Science Seminar Series. The talk by Professor Macartan Humphreys will be introduced by SPS Professor Miriam Golden.

Recent evidence suggests that vaccination hesitancy is too high in many countries to sustainably contain COVID-19. Many different strategies have been implemented by different countries and states to incentivise people to get vaccinated. But how do we know what can actually work?

In session 1 of the Fall 2021 CIVICA Data Science Seminar Series, Professor Macartan Humphreys from Columbia University and WZB Berlin will guide us through his team's research on exactly this issue, using survey experiment administered to 20,500 online respondents in Germany to assess the effectiveness of three strategies to increase vaccine uptake, namely, providing freedoms, financial remuneration, and vaccination at local doctors.
