The Royal Statistical Society
is one of the oldest statistical societies in the world, dating
from 1834 as the Statistical Society of London. The
Society is based in London and has a number of Local Groups
around the UK and further overseas.
The group in Manchester is very
active and draws support from all 3 universities as well as
from industry and business. We try to meet 5-6 times a
year with meetings held on wide-ranging topics.
These are not generally very
technical - there are many academic seminars held by the local
University departments which can generally be found by clicking
on one of the departmental links on the left. Recent
meetings have dealt with such diverse topics as UK Biobank,
Statistics and the Law and tropical disease epidemiology.
The group also hosts the RSS
Manchester Student Prize which grew out of the 2004 conference
here and is open to any NW final year undergraduate in any
discipline. The details may be found by following the links on
Everyone is welcome to attend
and it is not generally necessary to book your place or to find
a Fellow of the Society to hold your hand so feel free and drop
by. If of course you would like to join the Society, the
easiest way is to come to one of the meetings but if that is
not possible, drop me an email.
This web site is maintained to
inform people of events. We have an email list and if you
would like to be included in this, please let me know. If you know
of a link that may be interesting to local statisticians, again
let me know.
