IASS Webinar:Theory and Practice of Adaptive Survey Design at Statistics Netherlands

28 October 2021, 2.00 – 3.30 pm CEST

All are invited to the webinar, organised by the International Association for Survey Statisticians, entitled

Theory and Practice of Adaptive Survey Design at Statistics Netherlands

Please register for the webinar at:

https://attendee.gotowebinar.com/register/4163351772562712334

After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the webinar. There will be time for questions. The webinar will be recorded and made available on the IASS and ISI website. See below for the abstract and biography of the speakers.

Webinar Abstract

Adaptive survey designs aim to get a better balanced response by putting different effort in different groups of the population. They are effective in improving survey results and reducing survey costs. Over the last decade, a lot of methodological research has been done on this topic.

In this webinar, an overview of research on adaptive survey design will be presented. After that, the implementation of adaptive survey design is demonstrated at the hand of the Dutch Health survey. In this survey a sequential mixed mode strategy CAWI followed by CAPI is applied. The feature to adapt is the CAPI follow-up. The design is developed in such a way that through stratified selection of internet nonrespondents for face to face follow-up, nonresponse bias can potentially be reduced.

Mode-specific measurement errors which likely exist in many surveys, especially in the Health survey, have not received much attention in adaptive survey design. In order to separate and quantify mode-specific measurement effects and selection effects, an experiment with re-interviews is planned for the Health survey. The sampling and questionnaire design including analysis possibilities are discussed in the webinar.

Biography of Speakers

Kees van Berkel is a senior statistical researcher at the Data Collection Department of Statistics Netherlands and special professor of Statistics and Data Science at Zuyd University of Applied Sciences. His research interests are in adaptive survey designs, sampling theory, weighting adjustments, and integrating surveys and big data for official statistics. Currently he is coordinating the migrations to adaptive survey designs at Statistics Netherlands.

Barry Schouten is senior methodologist at Statistics Netherlands and professor at the methods and statistics department of the faculty of Social Sciences and Behavioural Sciences at Utrecht University. His research concerns survey nonresponse analysis, reduction and adjustment, mixed-mode survey design, adaptive survey design and smart surveys. He is coordinator of research projects related to smart surveys in areas such as travel, time use, consumption and working conditions. He is also one of the coordinators of ESSnet Smart Surveys.

How Can Data Science Best Inform Environment Policy?
A Symposium Offered by The International Environmetrics Society (TIES)
July 27th, 2021, 11:00-15:00 EDT (15:00-19:00 GMT)

Data science is an interdisciplinary field that uses scientific methods, processes, algorithms, and systems to extract knowledge and insights from structured and unstructured data and apply knowledge and actionable insights from data across a broad range of application domains. The field includes the area of artificial intelligence (AI), methods that enable machines to understand, learn, and make decisions and predictions based on hidden patterns in data. The study of data science integrates knowledge primarily from statistics and computer science, and application domains like environmental science. There are many challenges still facing the field as it finds its footing. One such challenge is the pressing need to de-silo science and government data gathering and modeling to ensure domain-specific expertise is available for optimizing and developing relevant and powerful methods. From the governmental point of view, this connects to the need to accelerate the delivery of evidence-based approaches and tools for fulfilment of mandates and creation of policy. 

The International Environmetrics Society (TIES) has held annual conferences since 1990 on topics connected to environmetrics: quantitative methods, monitoring, decision analysis, spatio-temporal models, and so on. One common element in these conferences is the intensive use of data sourced from national science agencies, and members of such agencies (for instance NOAA, United States; ECCC, Canada; Met Office, United Kingdom) have long been attendees. A one-day free online symposium is being offered as part of the 2021 annual meeting (also online, due to the COVID-19 pandemic) exploring the topic of Data Science and Environmental Data, especially as applied to Policy at a governmental level.

The link to the Zoom meeting information for this symposium (one link for the entire session, attendees can join at any time) is:
https://trentu.zoom.us/j/99857333793?pwd=UVNRUmhoV0lqd21OTDAwQjU2dnZBQT09

The password for the meeting is TIES if you are prompted. Please note that we will not be running a sign-up or attendance – if you are interested, please simply attend! We hope you can join us for this fascinating topic.

Dear IAOS Members,

On 11 October 2021, the ISI and IAOS have sent a letter to the Prime Minister of Fiji calling on him to act urgently to provide vindication of its actions to rebuild trust in Fiji statistics. This follows from the decision of the Fiji government to arbitrarily terminate the employment of the Government Statistician of Fiji, Mr Kemueli Naiqama, on 15 September 2021. The ISI and IAOS are concerned that the government’s action is a breach of the UN Fundamental Principles of Official Statistics and would in many countries be seen as unconstitutional.  It is the Government Statistician who guarantees to those outside the country that their trust in official statistics is well founded.

The letter sent to the Prime Minister of Fiji can be viewed here.

The following ISI/IAOS representatives can be contacted for more information:
