Examples of such topics are: sampling design; questionnaire design and evaluation; measurement process; estimation; analytical uses of data; index methodology; time series analysis; quality control within official statistics production; confidentiality; total survey error; systems and architectures for statistics production; ethics; dissemination; presentation of quality; training of statisticians; the role of statistics in today's society; the relations between producers, users, and respondents; intra-organization collaboration; international statistical cooperation; and evaluation and identification of statistical needs.
