program

Invited Session


Session I: Advancing the Theory and Application of SAE

Organizer: Jiming Jiang, University of California, Davis, USA

Motivation: This invited session will bring together a number of recent developments ranging from theoretical and methodological research in SAE and application of SAE in health sciences. The theoretical/methodological developments include model diagnostics in SAE, and prediction of outcomes of interest in health science using SAE techniques. The application development includes SAE methods in clinical trials. Below are the invited speakers and tentative titles of their talks:

[1].A Unified Approach to Goodness-of-fit Tests with Application to Small Area Estimation

Mahmoud Torabi, University of Manitoba, Canada.

[2]. Predicting Outcomes of Interest in Health/Medical Studies Using SAE Techniques

Thuan Nguyen, Oregon Health & Science University, USA

[3]. Application of Small Area Estimation in Clinical Trials

Angela Tang, Amgen Inc., Shanghai, China


Session II: Time Series Problems in Repeated Surveys

Organizer:William Bell, U.S. Census Bureau

Motivation: Along with his research on small area estimation and survey inference generally, another important area of Danny Pfeffermann’s research that relates to official statistics has been his work on time series methods for repeated surveys, and particularly on seasonal adjustment of time series from repeated surveys. I thus spoke to Danny at the end of the SAE 2017 conference about trying to put together a session for SAE 2018 with talks on this topic, and he liked the idea.

It took some time, but I have managed to put together the following slate of talks. I have to acknowledge that Duncan Elliott says he will not get a final decision on funding from ONS (and hence, effectively, on approval to make the trip) until January. I also do not yet have fina l approval to attend, which I believe is the case for all the other Census Bureau participants. In our case this is due to just general budget uncertainty. Below are the invited speakers and tentative titles of their talks:

[1].Real-time estimation of monthly unemployment with dynamic factor and time-varying state space models

Caterina Schiavoni (presenting author) and Jan van den Brakel, Statistics Netherlands and Heerlen and Maastricht University School of Business and Economics

Franz Palm and Stephan Smeekes, Maastricht University School of Business and Economics

[2].Improving timeliness and accuracy of estimates from the UK Labour Force Survey

   Duncan Elliott, UK Office for National Statistics

[3]. A Review of the Problem of Seasonal Adjustment Variances

   William R. Bell, U.S. Census Bureau

  

Session III: New developments on the estimation of discontinuities in sample surveys

Organizer: N. Tzavidis, Southampton University

Motivation: Many Official statistics rely on survey data collection, and much of the value in such surveys lies in their continuity, enabling developments in society and the economy to be monitored, and policy actions decided. This is often an argument to keep survey processes of repeated surveys unchanged as long as possible. From time to time changes in surveys are needed to improve the efficiency, reduce the survey related costs, or meet new requirements, and this is seen strongly in the use of mixed mode surveys including web-based questionnaires in official statistics. These changes affect the survey outputs. To avoid the implementation of a new survey process disturbing the comparability of estimates over time, it is important to quantify the impact on the estimates of a repeated survey. In this session three papers present recent developments of statistical methods aimed to quantify such discontinuities at domain level. Below are the invited speakers and tentative titles of their talks:

[1].Using state space models for an efficient parallel run design and measuring statistical impacts of Australian Labour Force Survey Redesign

Xichuan (Mark) Zhang, Australian Bureau of Statistics, Canberra.

[2].Hierarchical Bayesian multivariate Fay-Herriot model for estimating domain discontinuities in the Dutch Crime Victimization Survey

Jan van den Brakel, Statistics Netherlands and Maastricht University

[3]. Small Domain Estimation for discontinuities in the National Survey for Wales

Timo Schmid, Free University of Berlin
