The emergence of French statistics. How mathematics entered the world of statistics in France during the 1920s.

Abstract : This paper concerns the emergence of modern mathematical statistics in France after the First World War. Emile Borel's achievements are presented, and especially his creation of two institutions where mathematical statistics was developed: the {\it Statistical Institute of Paris University}, (ISUP) in 1922 and above all the {\it Henri Poincaré Institute} (IHP) in 1928. At the IHP, a new journal {\it Annales de l'Institut Henri Poincaré} was created in 1931. We discuss the first papers in that journal dealing with mathematical statistics.
