Journal description

Datasets relating to articles published in the four series of the Journal of the Royal Statistical Society are available online. Please click here Statistics in Society publishes original papers whose primary appeal lies in their subject-matter rather than in their technical statistical content to encourage clear statistical thinking on issues of importance to society. The journal's particular focus is on statistics as applied to social issues and this is interpreted broadly to include all disciplines which take people as their subject-matter. Thus education sociology medicine psychology the law demography government and politics economics and social geography all fall within its remit. The journal welcomes contributions from workers in central and local government or in business as well as academics and researchers in relevant disciplines. Papers should generally have a substantial statistical component but innovative statistical methods are not essential. Papers containing mathematical exposition are acceptable provided that this is relevant and that explanations are presented in clear English. Review papers are encouraged. The journal also welcomes relevant methodological papers with illustrative applications involving appropriate data. Such papers could include discussions of methods of data collection and of ethical issues.
