Social Statistics

The RSS Social Statistics Section arranges an annual programme of meetings. The Section Committee may also form study groups for the examination and study of particular problems.

The remit and activities of the Section are likely to be of interest to a wide range of audiences, including many people who would not consider themselves ‘statisticians’ and are not members of the Section.
We encourage such people to get involved in our activities and ensure that its meetings are generally accessible to non-statisticians.
