President’s Message

President Prof Philip Morgan assuming responsibility from Past-President Dr Fred Wheeler

Welcome to Manchester Statistical Society.  

We were founded in 1833 as the first organisation of its kind in the United Kingdom to assess and measure the conditions of working people in Manchester in order to facilitate social improvement.  This mission continues today as we invite experts from a range of backgrounds to share their knowledge with the Society to the exclusion of party politics.  Most of our members are not ‘statisticians’ in a formal sense; but they do have an interest in data and data collection, and how this can be used as tool to understand and improve society.  We have an ongoing programme of interesting evening meetings with details available on this website.

New members are welcome, so please contact us if you are interested in joining our Society.

Philip Morgan – President, Manchester Statistical Society
