Calls & Announcements
The 2023 recipient of the Waksberg Award, Prof. Ray Chambers, has been recently announced, and the Committee is already working for the next round: nominations sought for the 2024 Waksberg Award. The journal Survey Methodology has established 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 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 reflects 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 2024 Waksberg Invited Address at the Statistics Canada Symposium, expected to be held in the autumn of 2024. The paper will be published in an upcoming issue of Survey Methodology (targeted for December 2024).
The author of the 2024 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 should be sent by email before February 15, 2023 to the chair of the committee, Maria Giovanna Ranalli (email@example.com). Nominations should include a CV and a nomination letter. Nominations will remain active for 5 years.
