The Royal Statistical Society has launched a call for a themed issue of the Journal of the Royal Statistical Society Series A (Statistics in Society).
The title will be The Future of Online Data Collection in Social Surveys: Challenges, Developments and Applications.
Technologies change very rapidly and affect all aspects of life, including surveys and their designs and implementation. Data collection organisations in many countries are undergoing a paradigm shift in data collection and, therefore, social surveys, including censuses, are experiencing major transformations. There is an urgent need for evidence on how to utilise all the opportunities technological change offers and how to ensure that online data collection is effective and efficient, and results in high quality data, which can be confidently used for important policy and financial decisions. This themed issue of the Journal of the Royal Statistical Society, Series A, is dedicated to finding solutions to these challenges, through innovative methodological developments and applications, bringing together survey methodology, survey research, statistics and other disciplines.
The deadline for submissions is 30 September 2020. More information on the themed issue and on submission of papers can be found here.
