Strategy and corporate


The Royal Statistical Society’s vision is a world with data at the heart of understanding and decision making. To achieve this we have four strategic objectives:

  • For statistics to be used effectively in the public interest
  • For society to be more statistically literate
  • To develop the skills of the statistical profession
  • To strengthen the discipline of statistics.

Our Strategic Plan 2014-18 is the product of extensive consultation across the Society and beyond during 2012/13. You can also read the detailed findings of the strategic review which underpinned the plan.

Here is a short progress report (May 2015) (PDF) on how we are progressing with our strategic plan.
