The Oxford local chapter of the Royal Statistical Society, hosted by the University of Oxford, brings together anyone with an interest in statistics in Oxfordshire and the surrounding areas. We organise an annual programme of free events and lectures on statistical topics. 

Academics and non-academics are all welcome to join this local RSS chapter. For advance notice of events, join our mailing list by emailing rss_oxford-owner@maillist.ox.ac.uk. We are always interested in new ideas for events and lectures, so do get in touch!

His expertise include election forecasting, tactical voting, and turnout.
