Dear Colleague,

The September issue focuses on urban regional and small area statistics, an important theme for official statistics.


Asta Manninen

Asta Manninen is the guest editor for this issue. It was compiled in collaboration with Teodora Brandmuller and Klaus Trutzel on behalf of the IAOS Standing Committee on Regional and Urban Statistics (SCORUS). The invited and contributed papers deal with challenges and practices as well as new methods and new data sources.
