Census at the 2012 Joint Statistical Meetings

JSM Link to a non-federal Web site (the Joint Statistical Meetings) is the largest annual gathering of statisticians held in North America. It is held jointly with the American Statistical Association Link to a non-federal Web site , the International Biometric Society Link to a non-federal Web site (ENAR Link to a non-federal Web site and WNAR Link to a non-federal Web site ), the Institute of Mathematical Statistics Link to a non-federal Web site , the Statistical Society of Canada Link to a non-federal Web site , the International Chinese Statistical Association Link to a non-federal Web site , and the International Indian Statistical Association Link to a non-federal Web site . Census Bureau staff were at JSM Link to a non-federal Web site to exchange the latest research findings with colleagues from throughout the world.
