Sunday Data/Statistics Link Roundup

  1. Statistics help for journalists (don’t forget to keep rating stories!) This is the kind of thing that could grow into a statisteracy page. The author also has a really nice plug for public schools
  2. An interactive graphic to determine if you are in the 1% from the New York Times (I’m not…).
  3. Mike Bostock’s d3.js presentation, this is some really impressive visualization software. You have to change the slide numbers manually but it is totally worth it. Check out slide 10 and slide 14. This is the future of data visualization. Here is a beginners tutorial to d3.js by Mike Dewar.
  4. An online diagnosis prediction start-up (Symcat) based on data analysis from two Hopkins Med students.

Finally, a bit of a bleg. I’m going to try to make this link roundup a regular post. If you have ideas for links I should include, tweet us @simplystats or send them to Jeff’s email.
