SUMMARY

This book contains the keynote, invited and full contributed papers presented at COMPSTAT 2000, held in Utrecht. The papers range over all aspects of the link between statistical theory and applied statistics, with special attention for developments in the area of official statistics. The papers have been thoroughly refereed
