The Norwegian Statistical Association (NSF) was founded on April 28, 1936 (as a continuation of a club for statisticians founded January 7, 1919). The main goal of the Association is to  connect  Norwegian statisticians, work for their professional interests, promote research in statistics and  promote statistics in school and society. The Association also aims to make the relationship between statisticians from the Nordic countries stronger and increase contact with the international statistical community.

NSF has its own magazine called Tilfeldig Gang (Random Walk). The Society is one of the four organisations responsible for the Scandinavian Journal of Statistics (SJS).

NSF has three local societies. They are located in Oslo, Bergen, and Trondheim.
