Pat Doyle Award

Pat Doyle Award  
The Executive Committee of the Government Statistics Section (GSS) created the Pat Doyle Award in 2005 as a tribute to Pat’s dedication to the statistical field and the GSS during her lifetime. When Pat died, she left her imprints on an astonishingly wide range of projects and activities in the U.S. federal statistical community. The award is given to a person who contributes to the GSS in a way that leaves a lasting impact on GSS and ASA.  Recipients will receive a plaque and be recognized at the GSS Business Meeting at JSM as well as on the GSS website and newsletter.
