The Board plans and coordinates all of the activities of the society. They determine the budget, organize the member meetings and take care of individual questions of fundamental importance if they are not reserved for the member meetings or affect the entirety of the members.
The Board consists of the Chairman, six other board members elected by the entirety of members of the Society for a four-year cycle and up to two members, who can be additionally elected by the board, as well as the treasurer and the editor of the General Statistical Archives, AStA. The Treasurer and the Editors are appointed by the remaining members of the board. These arrangements provide an appropriate representation of all major disciplines.
A re-election as Chairman and a re-election of another board member are only possible once.
The Chairman is responsible for the company's business and represents this externally. He prepares the board meetings, leads the meetings of the General Assembly and keeps the members informed by distributing a newsletter on a regular basis. The Chairman is supported by an office which has a seat at the place of business of the Chairman. The Managing Director is employed on a proposal of the Chairman to the Board.
