Statistics in 2014: Reflections on the occasion of the 175th anniversary of the American Statistical Association
- Ronald Wasserstein (American Statistical Association)
The ASA is celebrating its 175th anniversary during 2014, with a big celebration planned at the Joint Statistical Meetings in Boston just a couple of weeks after ICOTS. Indeed, there is much to celebrate about our profession, and about the successes of the second oldest professional society in the United States. It is a great time to be a statistician! But there are challenges ahead, too. We’ll talk about the state of the statistical profession, and possible impacts on the teaching of statistics.
