Guy Medal

from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Guy Medal (English original name Guy Medal ) is an award given by the British learned society Royal Statistical Society to people who have distinguished themselves in the field of statistics.

The honor is named after the British doctor and statistician William Guy (1810-1885). There are the categories gold, silver and bronze, the former being awarded roughly every three years, the other two annually. The award criteria for the three categories are as follows:

  • Gold is only awarded to people who have made a special contribution to theory or the application of statistics through their innovative work. The golden honor is also given to people who do not belong to society.
  • Silver is awarded for special contributions by members in the society newspaper or at a congress.
  • Bronze is awarded like the silver medal, but with the age limit under 35 years.
