History of statistics[edit]

David Salsburg's book is a good survey of the history of statistics. It contains 29 biographical chapters on statistics scholars. It would be a useful reference for anyone starting such a new main article. DFH 20:43, 23 February 2007 (UTC)

Rename proposal for this page and all the pages of the set this page belongs to[edit]

External links section[edit]

I propose that this section be removed. Comments?   TheSeven (talk) 21:25, 6 September 2008 (UTC)

I think all the external links should go (only "Online courses and textbooks" present now), apart from the "sisterlinks". Melcombe (talk) 09:59, 11 September 2008 (UTC)
Agree - this is list cruft, subject to spam and doesn't really add much. —G716 <T·C> 10:56, 11 September 2008 (UTC)

new topics to add?[edit]

If statistical model had some sensible content, I would suggest it be added here. There is a need for a link to a basic regression article which I don't think is covered by Regression toward the mean but, since there are so many, I don't now which one would be best: possibly simple linear regression.
