Recently, I’ve begun following the Stats Chat blog. Run by the Department of Statistics at the University of Auckland – the largest statistics department in New Zealand or Australia (and the birthplace of R) – this blog apparently started in April of this year.

It’s aim is:

“to foster discussion of data around us, particularly in the media, and build an archive of resources for the general public, journalists and teachers”.

Although the posts may appear to have a heavy N.Z. orientation, the topics covered are definitely of interest to a broader audience. I especially recommend this blog to students with an interest in statistics and/or econometrics.

You’ll see interesting material, presented by members of a talented statistics group that has a long history of excellence.

Footnote:

I love the Department’s (and blog’s) by-line:

“Statistical thinking will one day be as necessary for efficient citizenship as the ability to read and write.” – H.G. Wells.
