Organised by Statistics Netherlands, in collaboration with the Dutch Platform for Survey Research (NPSO).
This year Jelke Bethlehem will retire from service at Statistics Netherlands (CBS). To honour and celebrate his contributions to survey methodology and survey practice, Statistics Netherlands (CBS) organizes an international symposium. The symposium comes at a time where traditional survey research and practice are challenged by big data, survey data arising from non-probability sampling, and various new means of communication. The symposium looks ahead and gives the platform to a number of researchers from survey statistics and social sciences.
