Dear Colleague,

We are reaching out to the statistical societies on The World of Statistics website with the following important message.



It is nearly World Statistics Day on 20 October 2015. The world's mind will soon be concentrated on the new Sustainable Development Goals. It is important that the statistical community make a strong statement about the importance of statistics in the international development process. Therefore the Royal Statistical Society, the American Statistical Association and the International Statistical Institute plan to launch the statement below. We hope other statistical societies and other relevant bodies will sign up to it, so that we can gain maximum exposure on World Stats Day.


If your organization is willing to sign up to the statement or if you have any questions please email Sarah Simpson at s.simpson@rss.org.uk. Please state the full name of your organisation, and also attach your logo for us to use to show the support.



Thank you.

Data for Sustainable Development – A Statement for World Statistics Day 20/10/2015



In September, at the United Nations General Assembly, heads of states and governments came together to launch a new and ambitious agenda for world development from 2016 to 2030. The Sustainable Development Goals set out 17 goals with 169 targets and more than 300 indicators to monitor progress. In the lead up to the launch of the goals, a report by a High-Level Panel of Eminent Persons set up by the UN Secretary General to advise on the Post-2015 Development Agenda[1], recognised that for too long development efforts have been hampered by a lack of the most basic data about the social and economic circumstances in which people live.



If the world is to live up to the promises made by our leaders then more and better data will be essential. To abolish poverty everywhere, in all its forms, the world will need to ensure that everyone is counted, that progress is being monitored and that this information is made available in an accessible and useable form as widely as possible. This will require a true data revolution, one that makes use of the possibilities provided by new technology, but also one that keeps the information about individuals confidential and which provides information that is trusted and credible.



The signatories to this statement support the call for a data revolution and recognise the importance of data for policy making and for accountability in all countries of the world. The challenges of the new development agenda require new approaches including a much greater emphasis on open data and the use of new data sources. We have to take advantage of the opportunities provided by new technology and big data and national statistical systems are central to this effort. These systems – set up and financed by governments to collect, process and disseminate the information needed to manage government activities – are crucial. They operate within a framework of legislation and ethical principles that promote objectivity, independence, confidentiality and accountability. These principles are likely to be even more important in the next 15 years than they have been in the past.



Considerable progress has been made throughout the world in building and strengthening the capacity of national statistical systems since the launch of the Millennium Development Goals in 2000, but much still remains to be done. Too many countries operate under severe financial and human resource constraints. To meet the data challenges of the sustainable development goals, national statistical systems must be properly financed, the development of statistical skills and expertise must be supported, and access to new tools and technology must be provided. Also, support must be provided not just to the collection of data, but to its transformation into useful and actionable information. Above all a true data revolution that puts useful and useable information into the hands of everyone who needs it, especially the poor and the marginalised, must be pursued.



[1] A New Global Partnership: Eradicate Poverty and Transform Economies Through Sustainable Development; The Report of the High-Level Panel of Eminent Persons on the Post-2015 Development Agenda, UN, New York, 30 May 2013 http://www.un.org/sg/management/pdf/HLP ... Report.pdf

Nominations Are Open for the International Prize in Statistics

https://www.amstat.org/images/asagraphi ... _color.jpg

Nominations are open for the first International Prize in Statistics, to be awarded at the ISI World Statistics Congress in Marrakech in July, 2017.

The purpose of the Prize is to call public attention to the important role that statistics, data analysis, probability, and understanding of uncertainty have played and are playing in the advancement of society, science, technology and human welfare. The Prize was created by five international statistical societies (American Statistical Association, International Biometric Society, International Statistical Institute, Institute of Mathematical Statistics, Royal Statistical Society).



Nominations are open through August 15, 2016. The first International Prize in Statistics recipient will be announced in October, 2016, and will be honored during a special ceremony in Marrakech in 2017. The Prize will carry with it a cash award of at least $75,000.



An international prize recognizing excellence in statistics has been a dream for many people for many decades, and the International Prize in Statistics Foundation is thrilled to be making this long-awaited prize a reality. But your help is needed! Please spread the word through your networks, especially via social media. We need to make sure we receive outstanding nominations for the Prize.



Questions may be directed to Ron Wasserstein (ron@amstat.org) or Susan Ellenberg (sellenbe@upenn.edu).



ASA Releases Statement on P-values and Statistical Significance



The ASA “Statement on Statistical Significance and P-Values” includes six principles underlying the proper use and interpretation of the p-value and is intended to improve the conduct and interpretation of quantitative science and inform the growing emphasis on reproducibility of science research. “The p-value was never intended to be a substitute for scientific reasoning,” said Ron Wasserstein, the ASA’s executive director, in a press release. “Well-reasoned statistical arguments contain much more than the value of a single number and whether that number exceeds an arbitrary threshold. The ASA statement is intended to steer research into a ‘post p<0.05 era.’” The statement is published in The American Statistician along with more than a dozen discussion papers to provide further perspective on this broad and complex topic.

International Prize in Statistics Awarded to Sir David Cox for Survival Analysis Model Applied in Medicine, Science, and Engineering



Prominent British statistician Sir David Cox has been named the inaugural recipient of the International Prize in Statistics. Susan Ellenberg, chair of the International Prize in Statistics Foundation, made the historic announcement via video statement.



A giant in the field of statistics, Sir David Cox is being recognized by the International Prize in Statistics Foundation specifically for his pioneering 1972 paper in which he developed the proportional hazards model that today bears his name.



The Cox Model is widely used in the analysis of survival data and enables researchers to more easily identify the risks of specific factors for mortality or other survival outcomes among groups of patients with very different characteristics. From disease risk assessment and treatment evaluation to product liability to school dropout, re-incarceration, and AIDS surveillance systems, the Cox Model has been applied essentially in all fields of science, as well as in engineering, that involve discovering and understanding natural or human-induced risk factors on survival.



Interestingly, Cox considers himself to be a scientist who happens to specialize in the use of statistics, a chord that resonates among many statisticians and data scientists. His model has been used in life-changing research breakthroughs, some of which include:

· demonstrating that a major reduction in smoking-related cardiac deaths could be seen within just one year of smoking cessation, not 10 or more years as previously thought

· showing the mortality effects of particulate air pollution, a finding that has changed both industrial practices and air quality regulations worldwide

· identifying risk factors of coronary artery disease and analyzing treatments for lung cancer, cystic fibrosis, obesity, sleep apnea and septic shock.



His mark on research is so great that his 1972 paper is one of the three most cited papers in statistics and is ranked 16th in Nature’s list of the top 100 most cited papers of all time for all fields.



In 2010, he received the Copley Medal, the Royal Society’s highest award that has also been bestowed upon such other world-renowned scientists as Peter Higgs, Stephen Hawking, Albert Einstein, Francis Crick, and Ronald Fisher. Knighted in 1985, Cox is a fellow of the Royal Society, an honorary fellow of the British Academy and a foreign associate of the U.S. National Academy of Sciences. He has served as President of the Bernoulli Society, the Royal Statistical Society, and the International Statistical Institute.



His 50-year career included technical and research positions in the private and nonprofit sectors as well as numerous academic appointments as professor or department chair at Birkbeck College, Imperial College of London, Nuffield College and Oxford University. He obtained his PhD from the University of Leeds in 1949, and prior to that studied mathematics at St. Johns College. Though he retired in 1994, Sir David Cox remains active in the profession in Oxford, England.



The International Prize in Statistics comes with a monetary award of $75,000 USD, and will formally be presented to Cox at the ISI World Statistics Congress in Marrakech, Morocco next July. Akin to the Fields Medal, Abel Prize, Turing Award and Nobel Prizes, the International Prize in Statistics is considered the highest honor in its field. It will be bestowed every other year to an individual or team for major achievements using statistics to advance science, technology, and human welfare.

European Central Bank Develops New Statistics Website
The European Central Bank (ECB) has implemented a new architecture for the ECB statistics website as part of its efforts to facilitate the use and access to Euro-area and national statistics.

Apart from the structural changes, new visualizations are added to enable swift viewing of core statistics. The navigation structure provides a more intuitive and coherent way to access statistics based on economic concepts. Also, short introductions for each section now provide visitors with a better overview of what is available, and a stronger focus is on the most frequently used statistics and latest releases.

AAAS Held Talk on Statistical Methods Used to Investigate Human Trafficking
The American Academy for the Advancement of Science, Washington Statistical Society, and Statistics Without Borders coordinated an event on March 16, 2017, where statisticians Davina Durgana and Paul Zador discussed techniques for gathering data on human trafficking prevalence.

Durgana is a senior statistician with the Walk Free Foundation. Her work focuses on supporting the efforts of law enforcement groups and nonprofit organizations by using statistical models to monitor human trafficking. “Having better data on prevalence will allow policymakers and others to have informed ways of measuring interventions and figuring out how effective policy can be made,” she said.

Zador, a senior statistician with the research corporation Westat, has designed surveys used to estimate human trafficking in countries like India and Guatemala and analyzed the resulting data. He noted that different methods are useful for different populations and that researchers must consider local culture and customs when investigating a specific region or group for potential trafficking victims. “‘Trafficking’ and the other terms we are using here have local definitions that may be very different than what you and I might accept,” he said.

Significance Writing Contest Offers Publishing Opportunity
The Statistical Excellence Award for Early Career Writing recognizes the ability of early career statisticians to tell data-driven stories in an entertaining and thought-provoking way. Organized by the Royal Statistical Society (RSS), this award is intended for students or anyone within the first 10 years of their statistical career – whether studying, recently graduated or already working.

Submissions should be between 1,500 and 2,500 words, on the subject of your choosing. Articles could be on work that you have done, or they could explain the work of others. But to stand the best chance of winning, your article needs to demonstrate the power that statistics has to challenge myths, shape decisions and explain the world around us. Articles must be engaging and easy to read. Significance is published for a broad audience of readers, with varying levels of statistical expertise. This means technical terms and mathematics should be kept to a minimum and explained clearly where used.

Entries must be received by midnight on May 29, 2017. The winning author and runners-up will be invited to give presentations based on their articles at a special session of the Royal Statistical Society International Conference in September in Glasgow, Scotland.

Spain to Host Introductory Course to ‘R’ in May
For individuals not familiar with the software program, R, the professional development organization “Transmitting Science” will conduct “Introduction to R” May 22-26, 2017, in Barcelona, Spain. The aim of this course is to give an introduction to R addressed to people that has never used R. By the end of the course, the participants should be able to import/export data-bases; manage data sets, carry out basic statistical analyses; draw high quality graphs, and program specific functions, all in R.

Students are encouraged to bring a data set with them along with a “previously completed” statistical analysis or graphic - ideally something fairly introductory and simple from the student’s own field of practice that you’ve worked with in Excel, SAS, or elsewhere.

Biennial Jamaica Statistics Symposium Set for October
The Third Biennial Jamaica Statistics Symposium and Pre-Conference Workshops (JASSYM 2017) organized by The Jamaica Statistical Society is set for October 24-27, 2017 in Kingston, Jamaica. The theme for the JASSYM 2017 is “Statistics for Success: Ethics, Data Security and Quality.”

ASA Expresses Support for Ousted Greece Statistics Officials
In a joint letter to Greece’s prime minister, Alexis Tsipras, on Monday, the ASA–the world’s largest community of statisticians with members in more than 90 countries–expressed deep concern over the legal proceedings against Andreas Georgiou, the former president of the Hellenic Statistical Authority (ELSTAT), and other senior ELSTAT officials.

Georgiou was appointed by the Greek parliament in 2010 to head ELSTAT and bring about the production of reliable Greek statistics. After many years of understated deficit and debt figures reported by Greece, Georgiou recalculated official economic statistics according to European Union (EU) law. Statistics produced under his leadership were validated and published by Eurostat (the official statistics body of the EU in which Greece is a member) for five consecutive years.

Although various judicial procedures have several times concluded the charges against Georgiou are baseless, the charges keep being revived. In addition, in December, he was acquitted of related misdemeanor charges for violation of duty, but that acquittal was reversed just 10 days later. He is now to be retried for the same alleged crimes and thus subjected to double jeopardy.

“The charges against Mr. Georgiou and two of his colleagues of exaggerating the estimates of Greek government deficit and debt for the year 2009 are fanciful and not consistent with the facts,” continues Mejia and Wasserstein. “There is widespread agreement among statistical authorities that Dr. Georgiou compiled Greek public finance statistics in accordance with EU rules and standards, with which Greece is obliged to comply, and that charges against him are baseless.”

Nigeria Statistical Association to Host First International Conference
From September 6-8, 2017, at the University of Lagos, the Nigeria Statistical Association will host its First International Statistical Conference with a theme of “Positioning National Statistical System for Data Revolution and Inclusive Development.” Keynote talks will cover areas such as the impact of statistical collaboration; developments in modeling over/under dispersed count data; and statistics for good governance and evidence-based decision-making. Abstracts are welcome from both members and nonmembers and are due on/before May 20, 2017.

Brunei Government Hosts Workshop on Evidence-Based Decision, Meta-Analysis
The Department of Planning, Development and Research (DPDR) of the Ministry of Education, Government of Brunei Darussalam organized a three-day workshop on Evidence-Based Decision and Meta-Analysis from January 23-25, 2017, in Bandar Sri Begawan, that emphasized the importance of decision-makers to be evidence-informed, especially concerning the levels and quality of evidence included in study design.

Professor Shahjahan Khan of the University of Southern Queensland, Toowoomba, Australia, and the chief editor of the Journal of Applied Probability and Statistics (JAPS), led the workshop, and Hj Ashri bin Haji Ahmad, assistant director of DPDR, welcomed participants.

The first day was devoted to the presentations on introductory statistics using SPSS and the statistical methods that are essential for understanding meta-analysis of summary statistics from different independent trials/studies to provide necessary statistical background to the participants.

Dr. Khan introduced a recently published method, the inverse variance heterogeneity (IVhet) model, and focussed on major problems with the random effects model in the way of comparing the two models to deal with heterogeneous meta-analyses.

In all, 27 officials from the Department of the Ministry of Education attended the workshop.
