The National Science Foundation and U.S. Census Bureau have awarded interdisciplinary research grants aimed at finding new ways to interpret social, behavioral, and economic data and new ways to use and disseminate the resulting statistics.
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.
“If we can get you to be more aggressive in the game until you’ve overextended yourself, for example, we can take those lessons into the educational materials we’re working on next. We can use statistics to prompt kids to behave in a way that makes it easier to learn faster or recall information better.
