Send us your best Stats of the Year and of the Decade!

Written by Web News Editor on . Posted in News

The Royal Statistical Society is not only looking for statistics that captured the zeitgeist of 2019, but as the decade draws to a close, we are also seeking statistics that can help define the 2010s.

Now in its third year, the RSS Statistics of the Year competition helps to raise the profile of statistics and celebrates their ability to explain the issues of the day. Last year’s winning and highly commended statistics covered a diverse range of topics, highlighting the amount of plastic waste in circulation, demonstrating the rise of solar power generation and illustrating the phenomenon of ‘shrinkflation’ via tubes of Jaffa Cakes!. The competition secured tremendous media coverage both nationally and globally. 

This year's judging panel comprises eminent statisticians, journalists, economists, environmental scientists and pollsters, chaired by our vice president for external affairs, Professor Jen Rogers.

Nominations stay open until 24 November and the panel will decide on the winning and highly commended statistics in December. We'd love to hear what statistics members would like to nominate.

Send your nomination in via our web page

Finally, if you'd like some inspiration, follow the hashtag #StatsoftheYear and #StatsoftheDecade for the latest social media updates!
