Royal Statistical Society

The Royal Statistical Society (RSS) is one of the world’s leading organisations to promote the importance of statistics and data in society. We are a global community of over 8,000 statisticians and data scientists, working together to achieve our vision of a world where data are at the heart of understanding and decision-making.

Membership of the RSS is open to anyone who wants to get involved in our community. Joining as a member offers numerous benefits, including improving your knowledge through our publications, sharing best practice with your peers at our UK-wide events, continuing your professional development with our professional awards, and having a voice in our member-led policy work. To help the data science community, we have also set up a dedicated group, which runs regular events and meetings to explore topics of interest to the data science community. To find out more, visit
