The 2009 Morris Hansen Lecture: The Care, Feeding, and Training of Survey Statisticians
Sharon L. Lohr
Abstract:The two volumes of Sample Survey Methods and Theory by Hansen, Hurwitz, and Madow (1953) have had great influence on the training and practice of survey statisticians. We examine current themes in survey sampling research and relate them to topics taught in classes on survey sampling. We discuss other aspects of university training and background that may help the survey statistician thrive in and adapt to a variety of environments.
