Brad Edwards, a Westat Vice President and Lead Scientific/Methodology Advisor, and Emily Berg, PhD, an Associate Professor at Iowa State University, have been selected as the Editors-in-Chief of the Journal of Survey Statistics and Methodology, a leading peer-reviewed journal publishing research on statistical methodology for sample surveys. Their 4-year term begins on July 1, 2024.

This honor taps into the impressive knowledge base of these research professionals.
