Cleveland Chapter

of the

American Statistical Association

The Cleveland Chapter of the American Statistical Association is the longest continuously operational Chapter of the ASA.


The Cleveland Chapter of the American Statistical Association - one of the ASA's first chapters - was founded in 1928. Through the years its members have steadfastly tried to fulfill the Chapter's purpose "to foster, in the broadest manner, statistics and statistical applications, and to promote unity and effectiveness of effort among all groups in the Cleveland area having an interest in or being concerned with statistics."

Our membership now comprises over 100 professionals involved in statistics and statistics related areas such as statistical consulting, quality control, biostatistics, research, and teaching. Some of the organizations represented by the current members are the American Greetings, Ameritech, the former BFGoodrich, Case Western Reserve University, Cleveland Clinic Foundation, Cleveland State University, John Carroll University, Lubrizol, Progressive Insurance, QED Industries, the University of Akron, and Youngstown State University.


As the focal point of statistical activity in Northeast Ohio, the Chapter provides an instrument through which our members can grow professionally. The conferences, workshops, and monthly meetings provide members with opportunities to discuss statistical projects and problems with their peers and to interact with experts on specific topics of interest. The chapter can also provide contacts for statistical expertise for business and industry in the area.
