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

Did you know that younger adults report feeling lonelier than older adults? Are you curious about why life expectancy is flatlining? Or why the number of trees on your street affects the price of your home in the UK? If so, there’s a wealth of data to help you understand these and other issues. Much of that data is collected by the National Statistical Agencies in countries around the world. The work of such agencies is the focus of this episode of Stats and Stories. Rosemary Pennington is joined egular panelists John Bailer, Chair of Miami’s Statistics Department and Richard Campbell, former Chair of Media, Journalism and Film. Their guest is John Pullinger, the current president of the International Association for Official Statistics and finished a five-year term as UK National Statistician, head of the Government Statistical Service and chief executive of the UK Statistics Authority in June of 2019.
