The June,2017 issue of the SJIAOS

Banner newsletter

Dear Colleague, The June 2017 issue of the SJIAOS is now available. In this issue, you will find a plethora of manuscripts on topics such as data quality, confidentiality of data, fabrication, nonresponse and the monitoring of adherence to the UN Fundamental Principles of Statistics. The issue opens with “*An International Perspective on the Undercount of Young Children in the US Census by William O’Hare*” followed by inputs from official statisticians in the U.S., Canada and France. The manuscripts and comments support the theme of this issue: “Counting the Youngest Among Us.” This theme was chosen to shine a light on the undercount of young children in censuses and surveys worldwide and the efforts to understand the possible reasons for missing young children. Lessons learned from coverage evaluation research in countries where the number of children is captured by well-established birth registration systems might provide useful insight for counting children everywhere. The June issue also pays tribute to Dr. Fritz Scheuren, SJIAOS editor-in-chief emeritus. As always, 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, IAOS nor IOS Press.

Ola Fritz

Dr. Fritz Scheuren received a trophy from IAOS President Ola Award during the 2016 General Assembly in Abu Dhabi in recognition of his genuine contribution and support towards developing the Statistical Journal of the IAOS
