Aerial Function Centre, University of Technology, Sydney
The National Institute for Applied Statistics Research Australia (NIASRA) of the University of Wollongong is presenting a one-day workshop on emerging topics in quantitative social and health research methodology. The workshop will consist of nine talks covering an array of recent developments and trends in social statistical analysis and design.
Chris Skinner is a Professor in the Department of Statistics at the London School of Economics, a Fellow at the (UK) Centre for Microdata and Methods and an Associate Member of the Southampton Statistical Sciences Research Institute. His research focuses on survey and social statistics including sampling, design, non-response adjustments, and the analysis of survey data. With Ray Chambers, he edited Analysis of Survey Data (Wiley, 2003).
Noel Cressie is Distinguished Professor in the National Institute for Applied Statistics Research Australia (NIASRA) and the School of Mathematics and Applied Statistics at the University of Wollongong, Australia. He is the author of three books including Statistics for Spatio-Temporal Data by Noel Cressie and Christopher K. Wikle (Wiley, 2011). Noel has received the 2009 RA Fisher Award from COPSS and the 2014 Pitman Medal from SSAI.
