Statistical Leadership: the Statistical Journal of the IAOS celebrates the International Year of Statistics

One of the ways the International Association of Official Statistics (IAOS) Journal is helping celebrate this “Year of Statistics” is to devote an entire special interview issue on some of the leaders of our profession. To celebrate them! We chose eight top leaders to showcase, four women and four men. They are from five different countries: Britain, Canada, China, Haiti, and the United States.

This issue should be shared widely, so we are offering the online version free at This special issue is available to all statisticians, whether or not they are members of the IAOS. For more information about regularly receiving the Statistical Journal of the IAOS, see the journal website.
