The **Korean Statistical Society** was founded in 1971:-

... for the purpose of the development of statistics and research in related fields.

The Society holds statistical conferences twice a year, in the spring and autumn. Beginning in 1982 it organised joint conferences with foreign statistics societies, the first being the Korea/Japan Joint Statistical Meeting.

The Society publishes three statistical journals: the *Journal of the Korean Statistical Society;* the *Korean Journal of Applied Statistics;* and *The Korean Communication in Statistics.* Publication of these journals began in 1973, 1987 and 1994 respectively.

The Society is organised into seven research sections: Industrial Statistics; Bayesian statistics; Surveys; Biostatistics; Statistical Computing; Statistical Education and Consulting; and Official Statistics.
