The American Association for Public Opinion Research recently released a report from the Emerging Technologies Task Force on the use of mobile technologies—such as smartphones and tablets—for the collection of survey data and new forms of information such as location, visuals, and connected device data.
In addition to supporting individual chapter-level activities and association-wide initiatives, the Council of Chapters is dedicated to making use of the Joint Statistical Meetings to strengthen chapters. Is your chapter representative going to the sponsored meetings?
The ASA will launch a campaign to elevate public and media awareness of statistical science and change the public’s perception of statisticians by educating them about the many ways they help solve policy, research, business, and other problems.
Amstat News is the monthly membership magazine of the American Statistical Association, bringing you news and notices of the ASA, its chapters, its sections, and its members. Other departments in the magazine include announcements and news of upcoming meetings, continuing education courses, and statistics awards.
