VVSOR - Social Sciences - VVSOR

Sociale Wetenschappen Sectie

The Sociaal-wetenschappelijke Sectie van de Vereniging Voor Statistiek en Operations Research (SWS-VVS; Netherlands Statistical Society; Social Sciences Division) promote the use of new and sound statistical methods in the social and behavioral sciences. The SWS-VVS appeal to both statisticians working in the social and behavioral sciences and applied researchers in the social and behavioral sciences. The SWS-VVS organizes one or two annual meetings on a statistical topic, which are then announced in the Upcoming Events block on this page.

Members of the SWS-VVS receive the ISI journal Statistica Neerlandica, the VVS newsletter (in Dutch), and the non-specialist journal StatOr (in Dutch). Members have free entrance to all meetings organized by the VVS. Moreover, members of the SWS-VVS allow the preservation of the only professional association for methodologists and statisticians working in the social and behavioral sciences.
