About the Society

Svenska Statistikfrämjandet (the Swedish Statistical Society) was founded in 2007 after merging Statistiska Föreningen and Svenska statistikersamfundet,  The purpose of the organization is to promote research and education within statistical sciences and serve as a forum for discussions about statistical applications and ethics.  During 2023 an updated code of ethics was released. The society has initiated two working groups within FENStatS: one about accreditation and one about Covid statistics.

Statistiska föreningen was founded 1901 as an association for exchange of experience, discussions, and development within statistics.  The organization was intended for producers as well as users of statistics.

Svenska statistikersamfundet was founded 1963 as an organization for professionals within statistics and mathematical statistics.
