Project Overview and Role:
The USAID-funded Health Policy Project (HP+) advances family planning and reproductive health, HIV, and maternal and child health programs and infrastructure by supporting equitable, effective
health systems through evidence-based policies, sustainable health financing, improved
governance, and expanded global leadership and advocacy.
Under HP+, Palladium is implementing an activity which seeks to quantify and explain the direct and indirect relationships between demographics and violent extremism/terrorism. Specifically, Palladium is quantifying the relationship between demographics-focused independent variables, control or mediator variables, and extremism/terrorism response variables using both multivariate logistic regression analysis and structural equation modeling.
Palladium is seeking a Statistician consultant to 1) advise on the current statistical approaches employed by the project, including review of multivariate logistic regression analysis methods and results; and 2) directly execute structural equation modeling to estimate pathways of impact with mediators.
All statistical work has been, and will be, conducted within Stata. The consultant will have access to all working files and databases. For the structural equation modeling component, the literature review upon which the pathways will be based has been conducted by the Palladium team; a large share of the data has already been collected. The consultant is expected to advise on these pathways, to run the analysis, and support interpretation and results reporting.
The consultant is not required to be based out of the United States as all activities will be conducted remotely. Level of effort is expected not to exceed 20 days.
