ISOSS-PSA award was conferred for significant contribution in the field of statistics in the Islamic Countries.

Most Significant Contribution in the Statistical Literature

(i) Statistical Formula.

(i) Selection Procedures. Three selection procedures were suggested. They are known as:

(a) Brewer- Hanif optimization of variance

(b) Modified Poisson Sampling

(c) Collocated Sampling

With the application of these selection procedures sampling error is reduced considerably. These selection procedures are available in most standard text books of the world.

(ii) Formula of variance estimation. Two variance estimators are derived. They are known as (a) Hanif- Mukhopadyay (1993) variance estimator (b) Hanif - Brewer (1980) variance estimator These formulas are available in most of the standard Text Books. (iii) Statistical test for Homogeneity of variance. A test was derived to test the homogeneity of variance. It is known as Samiuddin- Hanif- Asad Cube Root Test. This test is parallel to Levene's and Bartlett's tests. (iv) Brewer, Hanif and Tam estimator : know as BHT estimator (1988) This is commonly used in practical field (v) Brewer- Hanif Multistage Rule for the estimation of variance known as Brewer- Hanif Multistage rule (1970).
