19 August 2014: ASA PR Campaign Launches This Week

The ASA public relations campaign-designed to increase interest in the field of statistics and recruit the next generation of statisticians-launched August 19. The "This is Statistics" campaign will educate students, parents, teachers, and counselors about the abundant and well-paying career opportunities in statistics. The informational website features videos of "cool" statisticians doing interesting work, career and salary information, sectors that employ statisticians, and an interactive map of select organizations across the world at which statisticians work.

We encourage ASA members to share the website link with friends and colleagues, follow the latest news on Twitter, find additional information on Facebook, and view campaign videos on YouTube. The more we spread the word, the more we can correct the frustrating misconceptions about statistics. Contact Jeff Myers with your questions or comments.
