Since 1834, The Royal Statistical Society has promoted the importance of statistics and data in society. Now the RSS is a professional body for all statisticians and data analysts with more than 9,000 members in the UK and across the world. As a charity, the RSS advocates the key role of statistics and data in society and works to ensure that policy formulation and decision-making are informed by evidence for the public good.


About The Government Operational Research Service (GORS)

The Government Operational Research Service (GORS) are the analytical minds behind many of the Government's policies - policies which, when brought into being, touch the lives of everyone in the UK. Yours included. Through the use of various scientific and mathematical techniques, we add empirical weight to a new or revised policy. Our work, in effect, helps bring it to life. We employ around 800 analysts, ranging from sandwich students to members of the Senior Civil Service. Join us, and you'll be part of a small and select team who are able to influence the decisions of policy makers at more than 25 government departments and agencies. From justice to health to education and beyond, we look objectively at the complex problems they face and apply an array of analytical and modelling techniques to help them find better solutions.
