The Survey Statistician

Focus and Scope:  The Survey Statistician is the newsletter of the International Association of Survey Statisticians (IASS). It includes general information about the activities of the Association (meetings, seminars, etc.) and about meetings arranged by other organizations around the world that are likely to be of interest to its members. It contains various technical sections on issues related to surveys (e.g., survey terminology, bibliographies, summaries of papers or books). The newsletter also welcomes overview of survey topics, overview of the work done by the project participants or workshop participants and original research work. All submitted manuscripts are subject to initial appraisal by the Editors. If found suitable for further consideration, some of the papers are subject to the single blind peer review; other materials go for publication straightly.
