It was with great sorrow that we received the news of the death of the outstanding scholar Professor Stanislava Bartosiewicz. Mrs. Professor was a big-hearted person, an outstanding scientist, and for many people an authority in the field of quantitative methods. Professor Bartosiewicz's scientific output abounds in numerous works on economics, econometrics and statistics. Polish science has lost a valued academic lecturer, co-founder of the Wroclaw University of Economics and Business and the school of didactics of econometrics. Professor Stanisława Bartosiewicz shaped the scientific interests of students and mentored many doctoral theses. Being already retired, she continued her scientific activity, trying to observe and analyze socio-economic issues on an ongoing basis.
In 2018, the Professor was the guest of honor at the Second Congress of Polish Statistics, organized on the occasion of the 100th anniversary of the Statistics Poland. She passionately discussed the history of public statistics (Download the presentation in ppt format).
