About Royal Statistical Society

The Royal Statistical Society (RSS) is one of the world's most distinguished and renowned statistical societies.  It is both a learned society for statistics and a professional body for statisticians.

It was founded in 1834 as the Statistical Society of London and became the Royal Statistical Society by Royal Charter in 1887.  Today the Society has more than 6000 members around the world, of whom some 1250 are professionally qualified as Chartered Statistician.  The RSS is active in a wide range of areas both directly and indirectly relevant to the study and application of statistics.

Our mission is to:

  • foster and encourage the growth, development and application of statistics in all areas of activity which can benefit from it;
  • establish, uphold and advance high standards of statistical competence;
  • foster the production and publication of statistics on aspects of society;
  • serve the public interest by acting in an advisory, consultative or representative capacity in matters relating to the science of statistics and its application;
  • promote the public understanding of statistics and the competent use and interpretation of statistics.
