The Royal Statistical Society is now accepting entries for the 2018 Excellence in Official Statistics Award. The award is for anyone working in UK government statistics and rewards good practice, focusing on statistics for the public good. Particular attention will be paid this year to citations from users that show how the relevant statistical output has helped to make a decision, inform a debate or bust a myth. Credit will also be given to entries showing an excellent communication of results, innovative statistical development and work that goes beyond normal expectations. To nominate a piece of work, produced by an individual or a team, fill in a simple entry form on the RSS website. The deadline is midnight, 31st March 2017. Work must have been carried out or completed between 1 January 2017 and 31 December 2017. If you have any questions do not hesitate to get in touch with RSS Press & Public Affairs Manager, Mags Wiley at firstname.lastname@example.org.
