Mind the gap: survey statistics in practice (part 1)
Session convener: Gerry Nicolaas, NatCen
A session aimed at survey statisticians in academia, government departments, survey agencies and other research institutes. The purpose is to specify the challenges currently facing survey statisticians amid the increasing complexity of surveys, and the skills that need to be developed and strengthened in order to address these challenges. The outcome of the session will be a proposal on how to progress on these issues; e.g. setting up a community of practice, developing proposals for further research, development of guidelines or best practice, capacity building.
