The Morris Hansen Lecture Series​ is sponsored by the Washington Statistical Society (WSS), Westat, and the National Agricultural Statistics Service (NASS). The lecture series was established by WSS in 1990 with a financial grant from Westat. The series seeks to achieve balance between theory, applications, and policy and to highlight the diversity of disciplines that inform survey practice.

This series was created to honor Morris Hansen, a former Westat Chairman of the Board, whose pioneering contributions to survey sampling and related statistical methods established many standards and methods, many still in use, for the conduct of surveys.
