Some Wikipedians have formed this collaboration resource and group, whose aim is:
To improve Wikipedia's coverage of statistics and the organization of information and articles on this topic.
This page and its subpages contain their suggestions and various resources; it is hoped that this project will help to focus the efforts of other Wikipedians interested in the topic. If you would like to help, please join the project, inquire on the talk page and see the to do lists below.
This WikiProject covers articles related to statistics, including the history of statistics and biographies of statisticians. Articles within its scope include those in:
As of 6 December 2013, there are 70032557000000000002,557 articles within the scope of WikiProject Statistics, of which 70001000000000000001 are featured and 70005000000000000005 are good articles. This makes up 0.06% of the articles on Wikipedia, 0.01% of all featured articles and lists, and 0.03% of all good articles. Including non-article pages, such as talk pages, redirects, categories, etcetera, there are 70036134000000000006,134 pages in the project. Approximately 48% of the articles in the scope of this project have been marked (here) as requiring some form of attention.
The list of statistics topics is being extended to include existing articles not previously listed and any new or unlisted statistics-related articles should be added. The list contains over 2750 items, including some redirects (18 February 2013: was 2642 on 17 October 2011; 2233 on 29 July 2009; 1731 on 31 December 2008; and 945 on 22 May 2008). The list is not at present very sophisticated and this project could undertake general improvements given that lists are far more versatile than categories. Look at lists of mathematics topics for examples.
Some priority articles that the project hopes to make progress with are those in:
Cleanup: Articles in WikiProject Statistics are regularly scanned automatically for cleanup templates. A list of statistics articles that need cleanup is here. You can help by reviewing the list and correcting any deficiencies.
Any new articles that have an interesting or unusual fact in them, are at least over 1,000 characters, do not have any dispute templates on them, and cite their sources, should be suggested for the Did you know? box on the Wikipedia Main Page.
