In Memoriam: David (Tim) Holt (1943-2022)

Statisticians in the Federation of European National Statistical Societies have learned with sadness of the death of Tim Holt on 15 November 2022.

Tim Holt was a broadly interested and influential statistician who cared deeply about the link between methods and applications. His long career included positions in academic research and in institutions producing statistical facts, nationally and internationally. In this way, he was able to become an innovative pioneer of modern governance of statistics for the public good, supported by the trust of the users. His influence on our profession will far outlast his own time.

Our sincerest condolences go out to his family.

Walter J. Radermacher
FENStatS President
