The History of Statistics in New Zealand

A History of Statistics in New Zealand was published by Bateson Publishing in 1999, with funding from the New Zealand Statistical Association and the Lotteries Commission of New Zealand. H S (Stan) Roberts edited the history, and wrote substantial sections.

The book was launched on November 22, 1999. A copy of the book was sent to all NZSA members as of the 50th Annual Meeting of the NZSA in Wellington in July, 1999. Only a very small number of hard copies remain for purchase. The electronic copy is available for download and can be used as long as the NZSA is acknowledged as the source.

The NZSA is currently working on an updated 2nd edition. Contact the editor, Richard Penny, with suggestions for content.
