Statistics Event: 22 October


In the run up to this year’s General Election, the Royal Statistical Society’s ‘Parliament Counts’ campaign called on prospective MPs to commit to attending a workshop on statistics if successfully elected.

In addition to the session for MPs the RSS is running a dedicated session for MPs staff to which you are invited to attend.

Time:    14:00-15:00am, Thursday 22 October 2015

Place:    Room U, Portcullis House

Working with the House of Commons Library, the RSS will deliver the session, which will be an interesting and fun look at the good (and not so good!) use of statistics in public life. The workshop will support parliamentarians to use statistics more effectively in their day-to-day role, as well as providing tips on how to assess whether statistical claims really stack up. It will be entry-level, so no previous experience of statistics or maths is required.

Please do make time to attend this workshop. You can confirm your attendance by


Regional Constituency Events: Sheffield and Lisburn


The House of Commons Service regularly holds regional open days for constituency staff throughout the United Kingdom.

Lunch will be provided and this, along with the registration period, is intended as a chance to network with the House Service, other constituency office staff in your region and visit ‘stalls’ of  services.

IPSA have recognised the day as a training event and as such the costs of travel are eligible to be reclaimed through allowances in the normal way.
