Dear Colleague,

The March 2017 issue of the Statistical Journal of the International Association for Official Statistics (IAOS) is now available. This issue is a Festschrift. Its theme is “Constant Focus: Engaging to Measure Wealth.”

The issue is dedicated to Dr. Arthur Kennickell and his involvement with the Survey of Consumer Finances (SFC). The SCF is a critical source of information on the U.S. national economy and the economic livelihood of American households. Dr. Kennickell worked for more than three decades at the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System. Along the way, he gained much knowledge about all aspects of survey methodology and he shared his insight freely with colleagues throughout the world. We asked some of them to comment on the manuscripts we selected for publication in this issue.

Dr. Arthur Kennickell and Dr. Fritz Scheuren put the final touches on the Festschrift

 A person-to-person interview between Katherine Condon and Dr. Kennickell also appears in the issue. The views and opinions expressed in the interviews and conversations are those of the interviewee and do not necessarily reflect the policy or position of the Journal, the IAOS nor IOS Press.

Dear Colleague,

The September 2016 issue of the Statistical Journal of the International Association for Official Statistics (IAOS) is now available. The theme of the issue is "Data Fabrication." Steve Koczela, Associate Editor and Fritz Scheuren, Editor-in-Chief Emeritus have put together a selection of papers with this theme. The paper by Dr. Peter Winker from the University of Giessen, Germany has open access. There are many additional topics of interest to producers and users of official statistics. The authors present research and report on activities and best practices in many different countries.

The issue features an interview with Jean-Louis Bodin, founding member of IAOS and its second president. He has had a distinguished career as an official statistician in France, and to this date is still taking an active role in the organization of public statistical systems throughout the world.

You will also find a conversation between Gary Shapiro and Nilupa Gunaratna. They talk about Statistics without Borders (SwB) and creating continuing and sustainable volunteer organizations.
