A consortium of the University of Maryland, the University of Michigan, and Westat
Founded in 1993, the Joint Program in Survey Methodology (JPSM) in The College of Behavioral and Social Sciences at the University of Maryland is the nation's oldest and largest program offering graduate training in the principles and practices of survey research.
We have both full-time and part-time students, many of them drawn from statistical agencies (such as the U.S. Census Bureau, the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the National Center for Health Statistics, the National Center for Education Statistics, the National Agricultural Statistical Service) and survey organizations (including Westat, RTI International, the Gallup Organization, and Mathematica).
Our award-winning faculty is drawn from the University of Maryland, the University of Michigan, Westat and other organizations.
Since its inception, JPSM has increased the quality of technical staff in the Federal Statistical System, continuously enriching the field of survey statistics and methodology itself.
We would like to hear from you.
