When faced with a problem, some rely on solutions others have tried while some are determined to develop solutions of their own. We introduce three historical figures who pursued their innovative ideas and evolved them into what is now respected as fundamental statistical ideas. Their approach to solving immediate problems reflects how statistics is always driven by the need to understand new data - Data Analysis Australia is always driven by the need to understand our clients’ problems and their data.
In 2017, Data Analysis Australia sponsored three Consultant Statisticians to attend statistical conferences that were held interstate and overseas.
