About the prize

The 2018 Journal of Applied Statistics Best Paper Prize had been decided.


The award goes to Georgiana Onicescu, Andrew B. Lawson, Jiajia Zhang, Mulugeta Gebregziabher, Kristin Wallace & Jan M. Eberth for their paper: ‘Spatially explicit survival modelling for small area cancer data


This award was decided by the Editor-in-Chief and this year’s Award Selection Committee which found that this paper ‘advances the state-of-art applied statistics methodology by combining spatial statistics with survival analysis to model survival data that contain geographical information. The approach is interesting and innovative. Publicly available survival data may contain geographical information, and the paper demonstrates how to use geographical information for the novel modeling of survival data.’
