The mission of the Association is to facilitate advancement of statistical knowledge and promote applications of statistical theory in all spheres of life and hence contribute positively to the development of South Africa
The Association shall strive to accomplish this mission:

  • by creating a forum for attracting and nurturing statisticians in South Africa, and advancing their interests;
  • by actively participating in appropriate processes and structures which impact on the South African society;
  • by promoting public understanding of those statistical concepts which enhance critical faculties and effective citizenship, and fostering public appreciation of sound statistical practice;
  • by being accessible to, and supportive of, the users of statistics in the broader community; and
  • by actively cooperating with organisations and societies associated with disciplines that are broadly related to statistics.

The Association will give financial and other support for research into statistical theory and its applications; will arrange an annual conference and will give guidance to members by means of the SASA NEWSLETTER, the official newsletter, and by making available to members the SOUTH AFRICAN STATISTICAL JOURNAL, the official journal, and/or any other publication; and will in general carry out in a judicious and organised manner any function or act in pursuance of and promoting the above goals.

 

Note: SASA does not have collections of statistical data. Please contact StatsSA if you are looking for South African statistics.

Invitation to members to join the newly initiated Solution Exchange for African Statistical Community

Invitation to members to join the newly initiated Solution Exchange for African Statistical Community
Solution Exchange for African Statistical Community is one of the UN-sponsored peer-to-peer facilitation services for professional communities, implemented in many countries since 2005. Solution Exchange for the African Statistical Community particularly aims to promote interaction and knowledge-sharing among professionals and practitioners involved in generating, disseminating, utilizing, and archiving African statistics within and outside of the continent. It is designed to tap on Community members’ knowledge and experience towards the common objective of problem-solving.  In addition to providing a platform to exchange solutions to specific queries posed by members, the community allows members to solicit input to draft policy documents and to collaborate on joint initiatives in the areas of common concern. The solutions and experiences exchanged among members will be consolidated into different reports and made available for wider dissemination among members and beyond. The Community builds on the African Statistical Knowledge Network that was introduced over 2009-2012 by the ECA.    Please refer to the attached fliers to learn more about the community and how solution exchange services work.
To join the community please click this link:  http://www.solutionexchange-un.net/africa/stat/JoinCommunity. The link takes you to a sign up form that should be filled out.
For any clarifications, please feel free to email us at facilitator-stat-rf@solutionexchange-un.net.
We would really appreciate if you could broadcast to members of your association the links and e-mail addresses above and encourage them to join the community.
We believe this is another opportunity for professionals working in African statistics to come together, albeit virtually, to exchange solutions and ideas to address the challenges of the struggling African statistics.
