The journal Survey Methodology has established an annual invited paper series in honour of the late Joseph Waksberg to recognize his outstanding contributions to survey statistics and methodology. Each year a prominent survey statistician is chosen to write a paper that reviews the development and current state of an important topic in the field of survey statistics and methodology.

The paper should reflect the mixture of theory and practice that characterized Joseph Waksberg’s work. The recipient of the Waksberg Award will receive an honorarium and give the 2022 Waksberg Invited Address at the Statistics Canada Symposium, expected to be held in the autumn of 2022. The paper will be published in an upcoming issue of Survey Methodology (targeted for December 2022).

The author of the 2022 Waksberg paper will be selected by a four-person committee appointed by Survey Methodology and the American Statistical Association. Nomination of individuals to be considered as authors or suggestions for topics should be sent before February 28, 2021 to the chair of the committee, Jean Opsomer, email: JeanOpsomer@westat.com.
