The RSS 'Statistics of the Decade' initiative has been 'highly commended' by the 2020 memcom awards – which celebrates achievement by professional bodies and membership associations.
The campaign was 'highly commended' in the 'Campaign on a shoestring' category.
Commenting on the campaign, the judges said that it 'really brought the topic to life, engaging audiences nationally with a quiz and other tools and making highly effective use of a range of media. The initiative has made an important contribution to delivering the objects of the royal charter.'
The RSS has previously won this category twice, in 2019 with Statistics of the Year, and in 2018 with our campaign to end pre-release access to statistics.
The Society is still accepting nominations for 2020 Statistics of the Year until 29 November.
