|Topic:||Statistics, the US Census, and the ASA|
The ASA and statistics have shared a long history with the U.S. Census - beginning in 1839. Issues surrounding the 1840 U.S. Census was one motivator for forming the association. Many professional and technical interactions involving the ASA and the Census have occurred over the past 160 years. That history along with ASA history and current activities - education, meetings, publications, and careers - will be discussed. This talk will have an informal format with viewgraphs and an open invitation for questions during the presentation. Attendees may provide input from the chapter members regarding issues relating to ASA membership and services - value of current products and services, needs for additional or modified products and services, etc.
