Last week I was part of the fantastic two-day conference run by PhD students at Loughborough University. I met a great bunch of people, renewed acquaintances with those from last year and generally had a Good Time.

I gave two presentations, one of which included some links to sources for numerical confidence and a better understanding of real-world statistics. Here they are:

Bad Science
Understanding Uncertainty
Junk Charts
Numbers Rule Your World
Freakonomics
R4’s More or Less

The Correlation and Causation cartoon is from here, and the Parish Computer cartoon is from here.

Hope these help…
