The International Association of Survey Statisticians

The International Association of Survey Statisticians (IASS) is a section of the International Statistical Institute.

We aim to develop the theory and practice of surveys and censuses, and increase interest in surveys and censuses among statisticians, governments and

the public around the world.

The IASS believes that better decisions flow from a combination of sound source data and appropriate data analysis.

We provide an international forum for the exchange of ideas and advice relating to survey or census methodology through our newsletter, The Survey

Statistician, as well as through our online Ask the Experts web page.

We also provide development opportunities for young statisticians through our biennial Cochran-Hansen Prize.
