The Significance of Statistics

Article dated: 07-Oct-10

The Royal Statistical Society (RSS) has begun a joint venture with the American Statistical Association (ASA) to publish the statistical outreach magazine, Significance. Significance

The quarterly magazine, free to members of RSS and ASA, will be complemented by a new magazine website, to be launched later this year. The website will feature daily posts from a team of volunteer news editors. Topics will be similar to those that appear in Significance, and will inform statisticians and others of developments in a wide range of different specialist fields within statistics.

Subject areas to be covered include several which are prominent in the UK Data Archive’s collection: education, health, finance and the economy, food and drink, official statistics and social sciences.

The UK Data Archive is currently exploring opportunities to contribute editorial content for the new online publication.
