One hundred prominent statisticians from around the world gathered in London for a high-level meeting last November and produced Statistics and Science: A Report of the London Workshop on the Future of the Statistical Sciences. This report is written in an accessible style so people who are not experts in statistics can understand its messages and the impact of statistics on society. It is an ideal resource for university students, policymakers and the general public. The London Workshop was the capstone event of the International Year of Statistics, a year-long celebration during 2013 that drew more than 2,300 participant organizations, including BJS, from 128 countries.
