GSSSG: Aims, Objectives and Activities

Aim: to provide a forum that facilitates interaction and collegiality among academics with an interest in social science and/or statistics (both broadly defined).


  • Get to know one another – if we build relationships it will make it easier to ask advice, spark ideas etc.
  • Facilitate feedback, support and development of statistical knowledge (as academics we often run CPD courses but overlook our own professional development)
  • Share methods, applications and ideas that might be useful to the wider group.


  • Regular meetings
  • Members present work in progress, problems they are struggling with, or techniques they have developed or learnt about
  • Ideas for teaching statistics
  • Social events
  • Visiting speakers
