Bookings are open for the Radical Statistics conference taking place on 24 February in London. This year it is hosted by the British Library with a challenging programme covering a range of statistical themes:
measuring health – history and methods
deception in medical research – scientific and regulatory failure
deception in financial statistics – how this contributes to financial mayhem.
The conference gives an opportunity to learn how misleading statistics are used to bolster political preferences and how difficult issues can be demystified with clear statistics.
Anyone interested in research and statistics is welcome. The conference is neither technical nor limited to professional researchers. There are eight speakers and smaller group sessions, with lunch included.
