schema:description"The field of statistics is rapidly transforming into a discipline that Hal Varian at Google has called "sexy". And with good reason; from batting averages and political polls to game shows and medical research, the real-world application of statistics is growing by leaps and bounds.

Tackling a wide-ranging set of problems, he demonstrates how statistics can be used to look at questions that are important and relevant to us today."@en
