A research program in any official statistics office requires statistical and survey expertise. There are a number of different models for obtaining appropriate intellectual resources. The paper will discuss collaborations of government agencies producing official statistics with academics, survey, and private sector organizations. It will highlight benefits that arise by bringing together individuals focusing on theory with institutions that are implementing survey and statistical applications within their programs. These benefits come to all participants in the collaborations.
