The June 2018 issue of Significance is out now in print and digital formats. In this issue, we explore 175 years of history at Rothamsted Research, an agricultural research station whose employees – including Ronald Fisher – helped sow the seeds of modern statistics.
We also mark the 70th anniversary of the death of Scottish biologist D’Arcy Thompson, whose century-old ideas for studying shape and form have inspired generations of researchers, including those working in the field of statistical shape analysis.
With the FIFA World Cup looming, a trio of sports analysts describe the evolution of soccer analytics. And, in our In Brief section, statisticians and data scientists reflect on the lessons of the Facebook-Cambridge Analytica scandal.
Also, this issue:
- Putin's peaks: Russian election data revisited
- Brexit Britain, two years on
- About 'her emails' – analysing Hillary Clinton’s private server
- Statistics in pursuit of social justice
If you are a print subscriber, your June issue will be arriving soon.
