Sections & Interest Groups

Statistics is a diverse profession, with statisticians working in areas such as health care, manufacturing, defense, and national security, to name just a few. Each area may make use of different methodologies and applications. To aid our members working in these subdisciplines, the ASA created sections and interest groups, which are subject-area and/or industry-related and provide benefits specific to their members’ interests. Some of these benefits include the following:

Organize sessions at ASA meetings
Organize continuing education short courses and webinars
Submit articles to ASA journals and publications
Provide discussion forums
Publish newsletters
Organize workshops and conferences
