Articles about political polarisation, Poisson distributions and flying bombs, and a bot's-eye view of the world are in the running for the 2019 Statistical Excellence Award for Early-Career Writing.

Judges from Significance and the Royal Statistical Society's Young Statisticians Section met last week to review an assortment of entries.

Submissions were from early-career statisticians and data scientists from across Europe, the Americas and Asia. 

The finalists, in alphabetical order, are:

  • 'A story about a tiny bot', by Marco Antonio Andrade Barrera (National Autonomous University of Mexico)
  • 'The flying bomb and the actuary', by Liam Shaw (University of Oxford) and Luke Shaw (Office for National Statistics)
  • 'Trouble in paradise: polarisation and the popular vote in Switzerland', by Maximilian Aigner (Université de Lausanne)

The winning article will be announced on 11 July at the RSS Statistical Excellence Awards ceremony. The article will then be published in the October 2019 issue of Significance.
