American Statistical Association


I was President of American Statistical Association in 2013. The ASA is the world's largest community of statisticians, with over 19,000 members, and is dedicated to promoting the practice and profession of statistics. The Association is the second-oldest continually operating professional society in the US, founded in 1839, and supports excellence in the development, application, and dissemination of statistical science through meetings, publications, membership services, education, accreditation, and advocacy. ASA members serve in industry, government, and academia in more than 90 countries, advancing research and promoting sound statistical practice to inform public policy and improve human welfare.

ASA Huffington Post Blog

In early 2013, the Huffington Post contacted the ASA with a request to start a blog on statistics. I wrote the first two entries, and famous statisticians have been recruited to write new entries periodically. Topics are diverse, representing the diversity of applications in which statisticians are involved!
