Incorporating information from several sources is a fundamental problem in statistics. In statistical agencies, the desire to combine information from different sources to obtain an improved official statistic is increasing and survey data integration becomes an emerging area of research. In this short course, we review the current state-of-the-art survey data integration methods and discuss future research direction.
