Stats + Stories: From the Royal Statistical Conference

WYSO is partnering with Stats and Stories, a podcast produced at Miami University.

This episode features a number of interviews from the recent Royal Statistical Society International Conference from last month. Today's guests include, Iain Flint of G’s Growers talking about the IceCAM project, which helps to minimise food waste by adapting the growing programmes of iceberg lettuces according to weather predictions. We also have James Tucker, head of the Quality Centre and Methodology Advisory Service at the Office for National Statistics talking about respondent confidentiality, and data privacy and protection. As well as, Kevin Johanson from the Expert Group on Sámi Statistics based in Norway, on how the group is working on developing statistics on the Sámi people and how these statistics can lead to better policymaking.

Stats and Stories is a partnership between Miami University's Departments of Statistics and Media, Journalism and Film and the American Statistical Association. You can follow us on Twitter or iTunes. If you'd like to share your thoughts on our program, send your e-mail to statsandstories@miamioh.edu and be sure to listen for future editions of Stats and Stories where we discuss the statistics behind the stories and the stories behind the statistics.
