Overview

The Sources and Nature 0/ the Statistics 0/ the United Kingdom, produced under the auspices of the Royal Statistical Society and edited by Maurice Kendall, filled a notable gap on the library shelves when it made its appearance in the early post-war years. Through aseries of critical reviews by many of the foremost national experts, it constituted a valuable contemporary guide to statisticians working in many fields as weil as a bench-mark to which historians of the development of statistics in this country are likely to return again and again. The Social Science Research Council (now the Economic and Social Research Council) and the Society were both delighted when Professor Maunder came forward with the proposal that a revised version should be produced, indicating as weil his willingness to take on the onerous task of editor (a task in which he was assisted from 1985 by Professor Fleming). The two bodies were more than happy to act as co-sponsors of the project and to help in its planning through a joint steering committee. The result, we are confident, will be judged a worthy successor to the previous vo1umes by the very much larger 'statistics public' that has come into being in the intervening years. W. SOLESBURY Secretary Economic and Social Research Council D. A. LIEVESLEY Honorary Secretary Royal Statistical Society vii MEMBERSHIP OF JOINT STEERING COMMITTEE (December 1987) Chairman: Miss S. V.
