The aim of the Stata Journal Editors’ Prize is to reward contributions to the Stata community in respect of one or more outstanding papers published in the Stata Journal in the previous three calendar years. The prize consists of a framed certificate and an honorarium of U.S. $1,000, courtesy of the publisher of the Stata Journal.
The editors of the Stata Journal are delighted to announce the award of the Editors’ Prize for 2017 to Ben Jann.
Ben has been highly active in the Stata community for several years. He has been an associate editor of the Stata Journal since 2005 and has given presentations at Stata conferences in Germany, Britain, the United States, Italy, Belgium, Norway, and Switzerland (the order is by date of the first talk in each country). He has posted many programs on the Statistical Software Components (SSC) archive, being single or joint author of some 60 packages there. The award recognizes specifically four outstanding papers by Ben. Ben has asked that the prize money be awarded directly to Consciente, a small charity that sponsors educational programs in Morazán, one of the poorest regions of El Salvador.
