Welcome to the Web site of the National Institute of Statistical Sciences. NISS was established in 1991 by the national statistics societies and the Research Triangle universities and organizations, with the mission to identify, catalyze and foster high-impact, cross- disciplinary research involving the statistical sciences. Our strategic vision, adopted in 2004,  calls for a NISS that is a truly national institute, serving the statistical sciences community by

Performing and stimulating high-impact research at critical interfaces between statistics and disciplinary science, as well as between industry/government and academia

Supporting career development at all levels, with special emphasis on postdoctorals

Engaging the national community in a variety of activities, especially but not exclusively by means of the affiliates programs and SAMSI.

Our principal activities are research projects in such areas as bioinformatics, data confidentiality, data integration, data quality, information technology, the environment, education statistics, large, complex databases, and computer model evaluation; information dissemination through technology days, workshops and short courses; and programs for postdoctoral fellows and visitors. Many of these are conducted in collaboration with industrial, government and university affiliates.
