Dear Colleague,

The September 2018 issue of the SJIAOS is now available. The theme for this issue is “Statistical Business Registers” – a theme inspired by an invited session organized by Michael Colledge on this topic for the 2017 World Statistics Conference.


Irena Križman

We bring you an interview with Ms. Irena Križman, president of IAOS (2009-2011) and former Director-General of the Statistical Office of the Republic Slovenia (SURS). SURS conducted the first completely register-based population census under her leadership.

As always, the views and opinions expressed in the interviews and conversations published in SJIAOS are those of the interviewee and do not necessarily reflect the policy or position of the Journal, IAOS nor IOS Press.


We are pleased to publish one of the winning papers of the 2017 IAOS Prize for Young Statisticians (YSP). It is written by Andreas Mayer (Australia). It carries the title Improving Seasonal Adjustment by Accounting for Sample Error Correlation Using State Space Models.

For more information, please consult the IAOS website at
