William (Bill) I. Notz, a professor at The Ohio State University, recently approached the ASA with an offer to fund an award that recognizes the best paper published in the Journal of Statistics Education (JSE) each year.
Global statistical capacity building is the way in which statisticians can understand and constructively respond to global and local phenomena in real time and over time. JSM, with the help of ASA leadership, has acted as a catalyst for identifying and distilling the components of statistical capacity, particularly in ensuring evidence-based decisions and policymaking.
In June of 2010, the department of statistics at the University of Wisconsin celebrated its 50th anniversary with a research conference, Statistical Science—Making a Difference, in Madison, Wisconsin. Events honoring the founding of the department and the many achievements in statistics and science were featured.
Amstat News is the monthly membership magazine of the American Statistical Association, bringing you news and notices of the ASA, its chapters, its sections, and its members. Other departments in the magazine include announcements and news of upcoming meetings, continuing education courses, and statistics awards.
