About Statistics of the Year

Our Statistics of the Year competition celebrates interesting and insightful statistics that sum up important issues of the past year. We had a judging panel comprising eminent statisticians, journalists, economists, environmental scientists and pollsters, chaired by the RSS's vice president for external affairs, Professor Jen Rogers.
