The American Statistical Association is the world’s largest community of statisticians, the “Big Tent for Statistics.” It is the second-oldest, continuously operating professional association in the country. Since it was founded in Boston in 1839, the ASA has supported excellence in the development, application, and dissemination of statistical science through meetings, publications, membership services, education, accreditation, and advocacy.

The purpose of this organization shall be to foster in the broadest manner, statistical science, and its applications, and to promote unity among all groups at Temple University having an interest in statistical science or data analytics. As an official chapter of the American Statistical Association, this organization shall aim to expose students to both opportunities and experiences within professional fields relating to the application of both statistical science and data analytics.
