The U.S. Census Bureau announced today that Peter Miller, chief of the Center for Survey Measurement, has received the Harry O'Neill Outstanding Achievement Award from the New York American Association for Public Opinion Research for his career-long contributions to the profession of public opinion research.
Others to win this award have been Kenneth Prewitt (2001), former director of the Census Bureau, and Robert Groves (2009), current director of the Census Bureau.
“I would like to personally congratulate Peter on receiving this award,” Groves said. “Peter's contributions to the study and communication of public opinion research have not only been beneficial to the Census Bureau but also to the research community as a whole.”
Miller began his career at the Census Bureau in September 2011. He leads the Center for Survey Measurement, which helps serve the Census Bureau's mission to collect information through multiple modes of communication in cost effective ways. He has also served as a faculty member, chairman of the Department of Communication Studies and associate dean of the School of Communications at Northwestern University (1983-2011), as well as editor of Public Opinion Quarterly (2002-2008) and president of the National AAPOR (2009-2010).
On Monday, June 25, at the NYAAPOR annual awards night in New York, Miller accepted his award and talked about the Census Bureau's new Center for Adaptive Design that oversees the development and processing infrastructure that supports Census Bureau's surveys and censuses.
Since 1979, the New York chapter of AAPOR has offered members and the research community a ground to “debate methodological, ethical and substantive issues” relating to the research field. NYAAPOR includes members from both academic and commercial research backgrounds who “engage in methods, application and findings from public opinion research.”
