You are invited to participate in the biennial conference of the 
International Association for Research in Income and Wealth (IARIW), 
Joensuu, Finland, 20--26 August 2006. Full details of the conference as 
a whole are provided at http://www.iariw.org (follow the 
Conferences/Future Conferences links).

In particular, you are invited to submit an abstract (and, later, a 
paper) for a session on "Improving Estimates from Survey Data". Feel 
free to circulate this invitation among anyone you think might be 
interested in the session, or in the conference as a whole. The session 
description is as follows:

Session 2B: Improving Estimates from Survey Data (Monday, 21 August 
2006, afternoon)
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Many important economic and social indicators and components of the 
national accounts are derived from surveys, cross-sectional and 
longitudinal. Such data are also an essential part of building 
statistical models for the interpretation and explanation of these 
indicators. But survey data are imperfect: for example, they may suffer 
from item-nonresponse and unit-nonresponse, and the data collected may 
be subject to measurement errors of various kinds. Two main ways of 
addressing these issues are (1) improvements to survey instruments, i.e. 
at the data collection stage, using different types of questions, or 
different collection methods; and (2) addressing the issues after data 
collection, e.g. imputation, weighting, incorporation of information 
from external sources such as administrative records or other surveys, 
using 'complementary data sets', statistical methods, etc.

This session seeks papers concerned with innovative approaches to 
addressing the imperfections of survey data, using these two strategies 
or something closely related. Subject to this focus in strategy, we 
envisage a wide-ranging set of papers for the session. For example, 
papers might take a survey methodology or statistical modelling 
approach; they might be concerned with surveys of households, firms, or 
other units; and they might be based on cross-sectional or longitudinal 
surveys and, under the second strategy, may use a range of types of 
survey or non-survey sources (such as administrative records and 
registers, etc.)

Session organizers: Stephen Jenkins and Holly Sutherland, University of 
Essex, Colchester, UK

To make a submission, or for further enquiries, please email Stephen 
Jenkins <[log in to unmask]>.

The rest of this message provides further information about (1) 
submission procedure and timetable, and (2) session format. [These are 
common to IARIW sessions and conferences.]

(1) Submission procedures and timetable
-----------------------------------
(a) Submissions of papers for this session is by abstract (maximum 500 
words), sent as ASCII text in the body of an email, to Stephen Jenkins 
<[log in to unmask]>. Submissions must be received by 31 August 2005.
(b) Submission of full papers at this stage (in pdf format), if you have 
one, is also welcome. If you do send a full paper, you should also 
submit an abstract in the format specified in (a).
(c) Notification of which abstracts/papers are accepted for the session 
is by 1 October 2005.
(d) A first full draft of the paper is to be sent to the session 
organizer by 31 March 2006.
(e) A revised full draft should be available for distribution to the 
session discussant and participants by 31 May 2006.

Note 1. the IARIW conference secretariat requires that papers not 
received in time get dropped from the programme. (The secretariat will 
compile the final versions and make them available to conference 
participants on 31 July 2006.)
Note 2. Submissions from scholars in developing and transition countries 
would be greatly welcomed. There exists a travel grant for one 
developing or transition country participant whose paper has been 
accepted for the conference. (See the IARIW web site or the December 
2004 issue of the Review of Income and Wealth for details and 
deadlines.) The web site and the 2005 issues of the Review also give 
details of other conference sessions seeking contributions. 

(2) Session format
------------------
Papers at an IARIW Conference must be completed and distributed several 
months before the conference. In each session (other than contributed 
papers sessions), papers are presented by a discussant (nominated by the 
session organizer), audience discussion follows, and finally the author 
responds to comments. Thus it is critical that the papers are finished 
in a timely manner.

Typically sessions have the following format:
(a) Introduction by Session Organizer (5 minutes);
(b) Invited Discussant gives a summary and critique of the invited paper 
(15 - 20 minutes per paper discussed);
(c) The floor is opened to comments and questions, each of which should 
be limited to three (3) minutes per participant;
(d) The Author is guaranteed ten minutes to answer his/her Discussant 
and questioners.

Generally sessions consist of 4 to 6 papers. However, depending on the 
number and quality of papers submitted, there may be the opportunity to 
distribute additional papers at the conference or to have them 
considered for other submitted papers sessions. (See 
http://www.iariw.org for details)
