American Statistical Association’s statistics edit-a-thon

Ever wonder why those numbers are discuss on the evening news. Do you like culture and light snacks? Then, join us for a Wikipedia edit-a-thon.

The Statistics Edit-a-thon is associated with the International Year of Statistics and the Wikimedia-DC chapter. We'll improve articles broadly related to the field of statistics and the official statistical activities such as historical censuses. We'll train anyone new to Wikipedia, and have brief talks on subjects of interest. Ed Summers is tentatively scheduled to make a short presentation about wikidata at this event.

Adding/updating article ideas:
Statistics Without Borders (SWB)
create an article for the Washington Statistical Society
American Statistical Association
Morris Hansen article could refer to Hansen Lecture

    Outstanding! I really appreciate people letting me get up to speed on my edit skills. I don't have a lot of personal free time for this, but once or twice a year I can maybe do it, and I could also maybe do it at home at my convenience.

      Good to hear! I'm glad you came. It was good to work with you. Starting slowly and cautiously is fine. I did. It took me years to get rolling, getting better and more confident.

    the snow to ice forced us to quit an hour early ... 100% of those in attendance will receive their barn stars shortly.
