4th March 2014

Dear Interdisciplinary Journal of Health Sciences,

I am writing to you as President of the Royal Statistical Society. We are an international Society of statisticians with 6,000 Fellows around the world, and we celebrate our 180th anniversary this year. We were one of the organisations behind the International Year of Statistics, and we were very pleased that you were an active partner in this celebration of statistics.

I was delighted to hear that you are publishing a special issue in 2014 on the critical role of statistics in analysing the determinants of health. You are building on a long and wonderful tradition. To give one example from our own history, Florence Nightingale pioneered the use of statistics in the Crimean War to show how unsanitary conditions in hospitals were a principal cause of high mortality rates. She was the first woman to be elected a Fellow of the Royal Statistical Society in 1858.

May I congratulate all of your authors and readers on their interest in this critical area, and I hope that you will be inspired by the work of early pioneers such as Nightingale and will follow in their footsteps.

All of us at the Royal Statistical Society wish you the very best in the work you are doing.

Yours sincerely,

John Pullinger

President
