What is the JSS?

The JSS was launched November 1, 2013 at the close of the first biennial Jamaica Statistics Symposium, held October 31-November 1,2013. The JSS is committed to providing support for valid and reliable data analysis to aid informed decision-making. It fills a local need for additional exposure to training in and appropriate use of statistical methodology.

Who should join The Jamaica Statistical Society

All researchers, tertiary level students, professionals in the private and public sector and any person who needs to use evidence provided by data to guide the management of processes within their organisations should join. Members will be exposed to information that will begin to equip them for distilling evidence from data, carrying out the relevant analyses and effecting the appropriate knowledge translation.
