2023 FCSM Research & Policy Conference

2023 FCSM Research & Policy Conference

The 2023 FCSM Research and Policy Conference provides a forum for experts and practitioners from around the world to discuss and exchange current methodological knowledge and policy insights about topics of current and critical importance to federal agencies.


We seek abstracts that address advances in credible and accurate survey and statistical methodologies from both research and policy perspectives. Abstracts should be limited to 200 words. Submissions may address but are not limited to the following topics of importance to the Federal Statistical System:


  • Applied statistics
  • Bayesian methods
  • Data collection
  • Data dissemination
  • Data linkage
  • Data processing
  • Data quality
  • Data science
  • Establishment surveys
  • Estimation and inference
  • Privacy and disclosure control
  • Questionnaire design
  • Statistical computing
  • Survey sampling and weighting



Policy Submissions: Abstracts should discuss a statistical policy topic and discuss the implications or impacts observed thus far and may raise questions or issues without having a definitive answer. 


Research Submissions: Abstracts should present research studies and findings related to the topics listed above. Submissions should not simply describe a data collection program or be highly specialized.


Organized Session Submissions: An organized session submission should include 3 or 4 papers, a discussant and a chair. Organized sessions with both research and policy presentations will be given priority when the program is assembled.


Instructions: Submit your abstract and/or organized session at https://fcsm2023.org/
