The Royal Statistical Society Guy Medal in Silver is named after the distinguished statistician, William Guy FRS. The medal is:-

... intended to encourage the cultivation of statistics in their scientific aspects and promote the application of numbers to the solution of important problems in all the relations of life in which the numerical method can be employed, with a view to determining the laws which regulate them.
