The Seven Pillars of Statistical Wisdom characters ↠ eBook, PDF or Kindle ePUB What gives statistics its unity as a science Stephen Stigler sets forth the seven foundational ideas of statistics a scientific discipline related to but distinct from mathematics and computer scienceEven the most basic idea aggregation exemplified by averaging is counterintuitive It allows one to gain information by discarding information namely the individuality of the observations Stigler s second pillar information measurement challenges the importance of big data by noting that observations are not all eually important the amount of info. This is something else Stigler looks at 7 sections areas pillars basic foundations of statistics summarises their history their pitfalls their current developments1 Aggregation taking a mean it seems uaint now how mind blowing taking the mean was the first time around just a mere 400 ish years ago but moving all the way to least suares etc2 Information Measurement when do you have enough measurements How did the idea of measuring novel information in data come about3 Likelihood how did p values come about how did Bayes theorem become popular4 Intercomparison t tests all the way to bootstrapping5 Regression aaalll the way to multivariate analysis6 Design of experiments how did the idea of trials themselves evolve and how did Fisher s multifactor trials in Rothamsted revolutionise things7 Residual how do we explore the stuff that s left unexplained by our modelsThis isn t aimed at the general public statisticians and people interested in statistics you need at least fresh undergrad level knowledge of stats to appreciate what s going on here If you re into stats you ll find a book to loveSomewhere in this book s message is a great way to teach introductory stats not as in here are the formula please apply them but as in here s the problem the original inventor was trying to solve here s the way they solved it now apply this solution to a similar problem Nann Dunnes Books Sampler its unity as a science Stephen Stigler sets forth the seven foundational Orley Farm ideas of statistics a scientific discipline related to but distinct from mathematics and computer scienceEven the most basic Wanting Jocelyn idea aggregation exemplified by averaging Nashtaneer Dui bon Malancha is counterintuitive It allows one to gain The Serpentine Cave information by discarding The Night Torn Mad With Footsteps New Poems information namely the A Mrs Miracle Christmas individuality of the observations Stigler s second pillar The Poison Garden information measurement challenges the Kill Hill importance of big data by noting that observations are not all eually Bumps in the Night important the amount of Dominic's Child info.

The Seven Pillars of Statistical Wisdom characters ↠ eBook, PDF or Kindle ePUB Rmation in a data set is often proportional to only the suare root of the number of observations not the absolute number The third idea is likelihood the calibration of inferences with the use of probability Intercomparison is the principle that statistical comparisons do not need to be made with respect to an external standard The fifth pillar is regression both a paradox tall parents on average produce shorter children; tall children on average have shorter parents and the basis of inference including Bayesian inference and causal reasoning. A pretty comprehensive coverage of the major advances that led to modern statistics I felt the seven pillars were well chosen and justified but the examples drawn seem to have been selectec solely for their historical significance and not because they are a good representation of the concepts or easy to understand It would help to have contrived examples that would be easier for a modern audience to understand and make sense of rather than relying only on examples from the preeminent statisticians of the 18th 19th and early 20th centuries

The Seven Pillars of Statistical Wisdom characters ↠ eBook, PDF or Kindle ePUB The sixth concept captures the importance of experimental design for example by recognizing the gains to be had from a combinatorial approach with rigorous randomization The seventh idea is the residual the notion that a complicated phenomenon can be simplified by subtracting the effect of known causes leaving a residual phenomenon that can be explained easily The Seven Pillars of Statistical Wisdom presents an original unified account of statistical science that will fascinate the interested layperson and engage the professional statisticia. I thought this book was really good The author discusses the history behind what he has dubbed the seven foundational concepts that make statistics a science I really enjoyed reading this book
