Book Description

A relatively recent development is the organization of statistical science into formal academic departments. The majority of departments that deal with statistics and biostatistics have only been established during the last 60 years, with a few notable exceptions. Strength in Numbers: The Ascent of Statistics in the Academic World The book Departments in the United States (PDF) is made up of a collection of memoirs; there is one for each department in the United States that was established by the mid-1960s. The memoirs discuss important facets of the history of the department, including its beginnings, its expansion, the key figures in its evolution, its many triumphs (such as significant research accomplishments), and its infrequent setbacks; PhD graduates who have made a significant contribution; the department’s influence on statistical education; and a synopsis of where the department is at in the present day and where it sees itself heading in the future. Learn all about the origins of departments like those at Chicago, Berkeley, Harvard, and Stanford, as well as how they developed into the successful institutions they are today by reading this article. It is anticipated that academics working in the topic of disciplinary history will find the ebook to be of interest.
