The ISI World Statistics Conference, the IAOS conference and journals like the Statistical Journal of the IAOS, are the traditional platforms where views on new developments and important issues in Official Statistics are exchanged. However, conferences occur only a few times per year, journal issues are released maybe four times per year and typically only reach specific interest groups. This new online discussion platform of the SJIAOS will be an opportunity for anyone working or interested in Official Statistics, to contribute to topical discussions, at your own convenience.
Every three months a new discussion item
With each issue of the Statistical Journal of the IAOS a new discussion topic will be launched via a leading article. Statements from this article will then invite you to post your opinion and arguments. Each discussion will run for a year and be closed with a concluding commentary by the article author(s). When fully up and running (after four journal issues) there will be four different discussions topics open for your contribution at any time.
