About the 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 7000 members around the world, of whom some 1500 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.

How to find the Royal Statistical Society

The RSS headquarters is located near the Barbican Centre, in a converted Victorian school. The Rev Thomas Bayes lies in a grave at the end of the road.
