RSS publishes annual review for 2017

Written by Web News Editor on . Posted in News

The Royal Statistical Society has just published its annual review 2017, which provides a great overview of the work the Society has been doing this year.

The six-page colour document is introduced by our current president, Sir David Spiegelhalter, who says: 'The RSS is a relatively small organisation, but is characterised by an extraordinary range of activity.' He goes on to list examples such as our submissions to Parliamentary inquiries, training courses, journals and our work to improve statistical literacy including our increasing media profile. 

Sir David adds: 'I hardly need to say that these are challenging times for those of us who are deeply concerned with scientific evidence and trustworthiness of information. But these are also exciting times, full of potential to bring statistical thinking into greater prominence.'

The rest of the document explains what we have been doing to further under the Society's six core goals which covers using statistics for the public good, improving statistical literacy, promoting the profession of statistics, furthering the discipline of statistics, developing our membership and being a well-run organisation.
