John Haltiwanger receives prestigious award in economics

Shiskin Award is "a fitting tribute" to Haltiwanger's work

Faculty Associate John Haltiwanger has been awarded the 2013 Julius Shiskin Memorial Award given by the Washington Statistical Society, the National Association for Business Economics, and the American Statistical Association. Maurine Haver - founder and president of Haver Analytics, an economic information services company - is the other recipient of the Shiskin Award, which recognizes individuals who have made outstanding contributions in the field of economic statistics.

Haltiwanger is a senior research fellow in the U.S. Census Bureau’s Research and Methodology Directorate and Distinguished University Professor of Economics at the University of Maryland. His work focuses on using statistics to analyze firm-level employment dynamics, and he has pioneered new ways of understanding job creation and destruction.

“The rest of the world now knows what we at the Census Bureau have known for decades - that John is one of the best minds in economic statistics,” said Census Bureau Director John H. Thompson.
