Finnish Statistical Society is a scientific society for Finnish statisticians and students in the statistics programmes taught at Finnish universities.

The society was founded in 1920 with the purpose of advancing research, teaching and applications of statistics and bringing together statisticians. As of now, the society has roughly three hundred members most of whom are employed at the various Finnish universities, research institutes or as experts in the private sector. We also actively encourage students to participate in our activities.

We are a member of the International Statistics Institute and the Federation of European National Statistical Societies. The society publishes the Scandinavian Journal of Statistics together with other Nordic statistical societies, whom with we also arrange the triannual Nordic Statistician's Meeting. We also host the Statistics Days (Tilastopäivät) biannually in Finland.
