Bookings are open for the Radical Statistics conference on February 24th 2012. This year we are hosted by the British Library and have a challenging programme on:
- Measuring health – history and methods
- Deception in medical research – scientific and regulatory failure
- Deception in financial statistics – how this contributes to financial mayhem
This 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.
All interested in research and statistics are welcome – the conference is neither technical nor limited to professional researchers. There are eight speakers and smaller group sessions, with lunch included.
The Radical Statistics AGM and activity debate will be on Saturday morning February 25th.
