Recent progress in baryon spectroscopy is reviewed. In a common effort, various groups have analyzed a set of new high-precision polarization observables from ELSA. The Jülich-Bonn group has finalized the analysis of pion-induced meson-baryon production, the potoproduction of pions and eta mesons, and (almost) the KΛ final state. As data become preciser, statistical aspects in the analysis of excited baryons become increasingly relevant and several advances in this direction are proposed.
