This chapter examines the ways in which the Journal of the Statistical and Social Inquiry Society of Ireland articulated the voice and expertise of a learned society dedicated to ‘the study of Statistics and Economical Science’. Despite lacking the profile and resources of counterparts such as the Royal Dublin Society and the Royal Irish Academy, the Statistical and Social Inquiry Society of Ireland (known as the Dublin Statistical Society from 1847–62) and its journal exhibited a longevity and influence in the nineteenth century (and beyond) that is testimony to the dynamism of their founders and their ability to attract authoritative contributions for publication. The chapter pays particular attention to the Society’s published output from 1847 to 1890, its formative years, to show how the Journal was a product of the Irish experience of scholarly communication and of the learned society.
