|CNSTAT Mourns the Passing of Renowned Statistician Stephen Fienberg|
Stephen Fienberg, University Professor of Statistics and Social Science at Carnegie Mellon University, member of the National Academy of Sciences, former member of the Division of Behavioral and Social Sciences and Education Advisory Committee, and former chair of CNSTAT, died Wednesday, December 14, 2016, in Pittsburgh, PA, at age 74. An obituary that details his many accomplishments is available here.
Steve cared deeply about the health of federal statistics and the federal statistical system throughout his entire career. He played a key role in the development of CNSTAT and led and contributed to many CNSTAT studies. He also cared deeply about standards of evidence and, as co-chair for many years of the National Academies’ Report Review Committee, worked hard to ensure the quality of National Academies’ reports, often enlisting CNSTAT members and staff in this effort. For more, see our memorial page.
