Dillman named associate of National Research Council

Don-DillmanPULLMAN, Wash. – Don Dillman has been named a national associate of the National Research Council, the operating arm of the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering and Medicine.

The honor recognizes Dillman’s service to the academies, which frequently advise government and the public on scientific, engineering and health matters. He is a Regents professor in the Department of Sociology and deputy director for research and development for the Social and Economic Sciences Research Center (SESRC) at Washington State University.

He has served on four expert panels on government statistics surveys, chairing one that recommended revisions to improve accuracy of the nation’s Consumer Expenditure Survey, said Lena Le, director of the SESRC. The survey measures “the cost of living in the U.S. and is used to make Social Security adjustments, among other things,” Le said.

Dillman is on the Academies Committee for National Statistics, which aims “to improve the statistical methods and information on which public policy decisions are based,” according to the academies website.

He is one of WSU’s most cited researchers. Various editions of his core survey book, “Internet, Phone, Mail, and Mixed-Mode Surveys: The Tailored Design Method,” have been cited more than 16,000 times, according to Google Scholar.
