Statistics are integral to the strong advances made in public health. Many challenges remain in producing relevant population health statistics and interpreting outcomes, in order to improve and progress evidence-based intervention and decision-making. Our event, hosted by the RSS South Wales Local Group, will share knowledge and skills for addressing some of these challenges through talks by experts. Statistics do not make their contributions in isolation and so our event aims to bring together anyone with an interest in public health; including statisticians, data scientists, policy makers, researchers, healthcare professionals
