Established in 1885, the International Statistical Institute is one of the oldest scientific associations operating in the modern world. Election to the ISI is based on nominations provided by three elected members and reserved for persons distinguished for their contributions to the development or application of statistical methods or to the administration of statistical services.
The objective of the ISI is the understanding, development and good practice of statistics worldwide. Its success can be attributed to the increasing worldwide demand for professional statistical information, its leadership in the development of statistical methods and their application, and in the collective dedication of its members.
The National Academy of Engineering has appointed Hopke to collaborate with the Chinese Academy of Science to assess the urban impact of coal consumption and the rapid increase of private vehicles in China. He is a fellow of the International Aerosol Research Assembly (IARA) and is a recipient of the David Sinclair Award from the American Association for Aerosol Research and has served as the association's president.
