Yan Li, Professor
Mar 1, 2022, Professor Yan Li gave a presentation on 29th annual Morris Hansen Lecture.
The Morris Hansen Lecture series was established by the Washington Statistical Society (WSS) in 1990 with a financial grant from Westat, Inc. It was set up to honor Morris Hansen, whose pioneering contributions to survey sampling and related statistical methods during his long and distinguished career at the Census Bureau and at Westat established many standards and methods, mostly still in use, for the conduct of surveys. In 1996 Westat made an additional financial contribution to WSS so that the Hansen Lecture series could continue. The Morris Hansen Lecture is held in the fall of the year, typically October or November. The usual format is to have a primary speaker of outstanding merit cover an important topic of wide interest, and two discussants, one local; see the announcement here.
