The Bureau of Labor Statistics is holding information sessions about the Student Monthly Labor Review (MLR) to introduce the program to undergraduate students. The Student MLR is a pilot program available under the MLR banner that is dedicated to publishing social science research by undergraduate students. The program provides an opportunity for students to refine their analytical abilities, receive comments from experienced professionals, develop their research conjectures for graduate study, gain professional experience, and produce new knowledge. Subjects that the Student MLR publishes include, but are not exclusive to, demographics, labor economics, prices, environment, community research, and social statistics.
The two information sessions will be held on Tuesday, January 23, 2024 at 10:00 AM ET and on Wednesday, January 24, 2024 at 5:00 PM ET. Note that both events will present the same information. Registration is required and available online at https://www.eventbrite.com/e/bls-student-mlr-winter-information-sessions-2024-tickets-780789902617.
