South West Local Group


A warm welcome to the South West Local Group! We look forward to welcoming you to our meetings, which provide an opportunity for statisticians and non-statisticians from Plymouth, Exeter and the wider South West area to meet and discuss statistical methods and their applications.

Our meetings take place in Plymouth or Exeter and are often organised jointly with the Exeter Initiative for Statistics and its Applications. All of our events are free, are open both to members of the RSS and to non-members and are often held on a Wednesday afternoon. Tea and coffee are usually served after the talks.
