German Consortium in Scientific (DAGStat: Deutsche Arbeitsgemeinschaft Statistik)

The German consortium in scientific was established in 2005 on the 17.06 from representatives of the boards of four statistical professional societies, including the German Statistical Society.

In the agreement, the planned activities of the working group are determined. The long term goal of the Association is to establish a "German umbrella organization statistics", in which the various statistical societies are members. By merging the statistics in Germany it should be strengthened and the independence of the societies should be persisted.

Examples of this are the workshops which are organized by the working groups and committees, such as the workshop "Robust methods for dependent data of the working group non-parametric and robust statistics" in February 2012.
