Krosnick Wins AAPOR Lifetime Achievement Award

Jon Krosnick, a 1985 Ph.D. from the social psych program at Michigan, has been awarded the American Association for Public Opinion Research's lifetime achievement award. A faculty member at Stanford (and before that at Ohio State), Jon has been a leading figure in survey-research methodology and the study of attitudes, in particular. In 2007, I wrote on this blog about Jon's appearance before a Congressional committee on the use of survey methods to gather systematic data from airline pilots on risk-elevating events (e.g., "miscommunications between pilots and air traffic controllers, disturbances caused by passengers, bird strikes, or aircraft flying too close to one another"). Congrats to Jon!
