  Note to readers

Since its launch in 1975, the peer-reviewed journal Survey Methodology has allowed researchers, statisticians, mathematicians and methodologists from around the world to share ongoing research in the field of survey techniques and their practical applications. The journal focuses on the development and evaluation of methodologies, as applied to data collection or to data themselves.

Historical papers from Survey Methodology are now available online. Electronic copies of any paper published since December 1981 (Volume 7-2) are available online in the Analysis module of our website. A few selected papers from Volume 1 to Volume 7-1 are also available online. All other papers can be obtained by contacting us at

All papers are refereed. However, authors retain full responsibility for the contents of their papers, and opinions expressed are not necessarily those of the journal's editorial board or Statistics Canada.


The June 2020 issue of Survey Methodology, Vol. 46, no. 1 (Catalogue number12-001-X), is now available.
