We are Australia’s premier group dedicated to the needs of early career statisticians



The SSA Young Statisticians aim to:

Networking – opportunities to meet and mingle with peers and distinguished statisticians

YS-specific events

  • biennial national Young Statisticians Conference
  • special sessions and social events at Australian Statistical conferences
  • State-based events: career nights, dinners, networking


  • Branches often offer travel grants for student members attending Statistical Society of Australia conferences (ASC or YSC).
  • Jubilee travel grant for student members

Discounts on SSA workshops and conferences

Involvement – we are run by young statisticians for young statisticians, and there are many opportunities for committee involvement. We want to hear your ideas!


Being awarded the (YSC2011) best presentation award not only increases my confidence in being able to present professional topics, but also leads to more academic opportunities such as invited talks in other Universities.
