About the journal

Statistics in Transition new series (SiTns) is an international journal published jointly by the Polish Statistical Association (PTS) and Statistics Poland (GUS), which sponsors the publication. Statistics in Transition was launched in 1993 and issued twice a year until 2006. Since then, it has appeared under a slightly changed title Statistics in Transition new series three times a year; and since 2013 as a regular quarterly journal.

The journal provides a forum for exchange of ideas and experience amongst members of international community of statisticians, data producers and users, including researchers, teachers, policy makers and the general public. Its initially dominating focus on statistical issues pertinent to transition from centrally planned to a market-oriented economy has gradually been extended to embracing statistical problems related to the development and modernization of the system of public (official) statistics, in general.
