Visit the Statistics Without Borders home page


Statistics Without Borders (SWB) is an apolitical organization under the auspices of the American Statistical Association, comprised entirely of volunteers, that provides pro bono statistical consulting and assistance to organizations and government agencies in support of these organizations' not-for-profit efforts to deal with international health issues (broadly defined). Our vision is to achieve better statistical practice, including statistical analysis and design of experiments and surveys, so that international health projects and initiatives are delivered more effectively and efficiently.

Composition: The Executive Committee (EC) of Statistics Without Borders (SWB) consists of a Chair and Vice Chair, several Directors, and a Past Chair. The EC meets twice monthly to discuss new projects, volunteers, and other issues involving SWB. Elections for chair and vice chair occur every two years.
