This event is the second in a series, which will continue through the summer and into the fall. The first was held in December 2014 by the Washington Statistical Society, entitled “Curb-stoning: a Too Neglected and Very Embarrassing Survey Problem”. Both the slides (1, 2, 3, 4, 5) and the full audio are now available for those who were unable to attend in person. This event is currently being written up by the panelists for submission to the Statistical Journal of the International Association of Official Statistics (IAOS).

Another event is planned for June with the Washington Statistical Society, and is in the planning stages. And a session on fabrication was accepted for the Total Survey Error conference in Baltimore, MD, to be held in September 2015.
