Paris Statistical Society

The Statistical Society of Paris

The Société de Statistique de Paris (Statistical Society of Paris) was founded in 1860. It no longer exists today, since it is one of the societies that merged to form the 'Société Française de Statistique' (French Statistical Society) in 1997. It had its first meeting at the Hôtel de Ville in Paris on 5 June 1860, under the chairmanship of Michel Chevalier. Beginning in 1860, the Society published the Journal de la Société de Statistique de Paris (Journal of the Statistical Society of Paris) which has transferred to the French Statistical Society and is the main publication of the present Society.
