WYSO is partnering with Stats and Stories, a podcast produced at Miami University.

It seems like everyone and their brother is announcing their picks for book of the year, album of the year, or movie of the year, and the movie is Star Wars. The Royal Statistical Society has just announced its Statistics of the Year. They range from statistics about poverty or life expectancy, to those centered upon environmental issues and car crashes. The RSS’ Statistics of the Year are the focus of this episode of Stats and Stories. Rosemary Pennington is joined by regular panelists John Bailer, Chair of Miami Statistics department, and Richard Campbell of Media, Journalism and Film. Their guest is Iain Wilton, Director of Policy and Public Affairs at RSS and helps coordinate the selection of winners for the Statistic of the Year contest.

Stats and Stories is a partnership between Miami University's Departments of Statistics and Media, Journalism and Film and the American Statistical Association.
