EDSTAT-L is a discussion list for statistics education, begun in October, 1991. This listserv allows statisticians to discuss the topics, techniques, and technology used in their classes. Our 18-year longitudinal study will include an analysis of the number of messages generated each month. We will identify the most discussed subjects for each year. Another analysis will also focus on the most popular threads/subjects in the discussion, which should benefit present and future statistics educators. Finally, there will be a comparison of EDSTAT-L and other discussion lists dealing with statistics education, such as the APSTAT-L and the Isolated Statistician’s listserv.
