Craig A. Hill

Unit Vice President, Survey, Computing, and Statistical Sciences

Craig A. Hill, PhD, has more than 30 years of experience in social science research, directing research projects both large and small for a wide variety of federal, academic, and commercial clients; in addition, Dr. Hill has published and presented papers related to social science methods, including topics as diverse as hospital ranking methodology, interviewer fraud, new technology for social science research, and social media in survey research. In his current role, he sets vision and strategy for the Survey, Computing, and Statistical Sciences Unit, a $150 million business unit that designs and implements projects using a variety of technological, analytical, and methodological approaches. The majority of the unit’s business derives from survey-related projects in which primary data collection (through telephone and in-person interviews, medical record abstraction, clinical report forms, and self-administered paper and web questionnaires) is a main component. The fastest-growing component is the Center for Data Science, which brings new techniques, tools, and approaches to the social sciences.
