  • Abstract
    The historical evolution of Statistics and Probability in Spain can be viewed from different perspectives. In this paper three of them have been included, namely, the essentially historical perspective, a (rather personal) view of how most of the Statistics departments or groups were created in around the third quarter of the XX Century, and a concise and positive analysis of the evolution of both the scientific production and the publication uses in Spain along the very last decades.
