San Francisco Bay Area Chapter

of  the

American Statistical Association


This is the home page of the San Francisco Bay Area chapter of the American Statistical Association (ASA). Its purpose is to act as a clearinghouse of information of interest to statisticians in the Bay Area. In it you will find announcements of local meetings and seminars, Bay Area job listings, and information on local jobseekers and consultants. 



The Bay Area Chapter has organized local statisticians to visit AP statistics classrooms and give a one hour lecture on careers in statistics. For the 5th consecutive year the AP statistics teacher at Menlo Atherton High School in Menlo Park has invited a statistician(s) to give a one hour lecture on -careers in statistics-. These lectures will occur between May 18 and May 29.
