Kimmo Vehkalahti, Statistician / Data Scientist


I have studied the effects of measurement errors on statistical research methods as a member of the research group of Social Statistics. Our articles have been published, for example, in Computational Statistics & Data Analysis and Journal of Multivariate Analysis.

More recently I have been involved in developing and documenting an open source version of the Survo software in a form of an R package Muste. Since 2013, it has been called Survo R.
