Dear Colleague,

The March 2018 issue of the SJIAOS is now available. It is a special issue devoted to the Statistics of Income Division (SOI) of the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) in the United States.

Barry Johnson, the current director of SOI has compiled a series of manuscripts authored by his staff to provide examples representative of the work within the agency.

We start with the history of SOI. The history is told by Fritz Scheuren, editor-in-chief emeritus of our Journal and director of SOI from 1980 to 1994.

In addition to the SOI manuscripts, you will find Katherine Condon’s interview with Nancy McBeth, a consultant with the Statistical Center for the Cooperation Council for the Arab Countries of the Gulf (GCC-Stat) in Muscat, Oman, since late 2014. Nancy is currently serving on the IAOS Executive Committee as a special assistant to the IAOS president.

You will also find a conversation with our interview editor, Nancy Torrieri. She talks to a US Census Bureau geographer, Michael Ratcliffe, about Census geography, its importance and relevance for users of official statistics.
