We invite all fellows and those with an interest in our work to the ceremony for the Royal Statistical Society Statistical Excellence Awards, which will be followed by the Society’s annual summer reception.

Each year we commend excellence in the work of statisticians in government together with the UK Statistics Authority, and we recognise outstanding work by journalists in their use of data and statistics in the media.

The keynote speech will be given by Timandra Harkness, data enthusiast and comedian, followed by the awards ceremony which will be led by John Pullinger, National Statistician, Peter Diggle, RSS president and Jenny Freeman, RSS vice-president for external affairs.
