WONG, George Mason University TING YAN, NORC at the University of Chicago LAWRENCE YUN, National Association of Realtors ••• We note with sadness the untimely passing of Randy Gustafson, director of the Ten- nessee State Data Center, on June 9, 2012—shortly after submitting his entry to our case study set and shortly before the workshop itself. He was an early and enthusias- tic supporter of this workshop—among the first to reply to the steering committee’s canvass for interested ACS users and the first to agree to contribute a study.
