Royal Statistical Society Guy Medal in Bronze


The Royal Statistical Society Guy Medal in Bronze 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.

Fellows or non-fellows of the Royal Statistical Society who have communicated papers of special merit to a section of a local group of which they are members or have published such papers in the journals of the Society are considered for Bronze Medals. Preference is given to those under the age of 35.
