JASA is the flagship journal of the American Statistical Association, the largest organization of professional statisticians in the US, and has been published since 1888. A survey of statisticians in 2003 had JASA ranked first in the area of applied statistics and second (behind the Annals of Statistics) in mathematical statistics.
