Statistics is the science of learning from data. Statisticians collect, organize, analyze, interpret, and present data. We are constantly seeking better ways to do that in more and more challenging situations, using mathematics, computing, and insight. People use statistics in business, industry, medicine, government, and scientific research.

The Institute for Research on Statistics and its Applications (IRSA) serves to advance the use of statistics in the 21st century.
