West Midlands


The West Midlands Local Group (WMLG) of the Royal Statistical Society (RSS) arranges an annual programme of mostly general interest talks and sponsors statistical events intended to appeal to anyone with an interest in statistics and its applications. The RSS WMLG has a long established history, being the direct successor of the “Birmingham and District Group” formed in 1945. We hold four meetings each year: two at the University of Warwick (on Thursdays, 5–6pm) and two at the University of Birmingham (on Wednesdays, 4–5pm).

To celebrate the 70th anniversary of the local group a history was compiled and can be found here.
