Waksberg Award

The journal Survey Methodology has established in 2001 an annual invited paper series in honor of the late Joseph Waksberg to recognize his outstanding contributions to survey statistics and methodology. Each year a prominent survey statistician is chosen by a four-person selection committee appointed by Survey Methodology and the American Statistical Association. The selected statistician is invited to write a paper for Survey Methodology that reviews the development and current state of an important topic in the field of survey statistics and methodology. The paper reflects the mixture of theory and practice that characterized Joseph Waksberg’s work. The recipient of the Waksberg Award is also invited to give the Waksberg Invited Address, usually at the Statistics Canada Symposium, and receives an honorarium.

Call for nominations for the 2024 Waksberg Award

Nomination of individuals to be considered should be sent by email before February 15, 2023 to the chair of the committee, Maria Giovanna Ranalli (maria.ranalli@unipg.it). Nominations should include a CV and a nomination letter. Nominations remain active for 5 years.
