Sections and Groups

Want to set up a new local group or special interest group (which is a nascent section), please contact Remember to check out our range of sections and groups, which cover different geographical areas and statistical topics, before expressing interest in establishing a new group.


We have formed Sections to promote particular branches and applications of statistics. These meetings are usually based around a presented paper or talk. 

Local groups

We have a number of local groups in the UK and overseas that organise talks, events and social activities in their local area.  New members are always welcome.

Special interest groups

Special Interest Groups can be formed for a limited three-year period to gauge interest in a particular statistical topic or interest area.
