Versta Research to Participate in 2013 International Year of Statistics
December 1, 2012
Versta Research announced today its participation in the upcoming 2013 International Year of Statistics. The company has joined a host of other firms, universities, professional societies, national statistical bureaus, and research institutes from around the world in offering special programs and training to highlight the importance of statistics in everyday life.
“The focus of this year-long event is a natural fit for our mission to help clients turn data into stories,” said Joe Hopper, president of Versta Research. “We focus a great deal on complex quantitative analysis, but the real challenge for any highly trained statistician or researcher is to demonstrate the logic and meaning behind the data. The data always point to stories, decisions, and actions that people care a great deal about.”
The International Year of Statistics is being organized by the American Statistical Association, the Institute of Mathematical Statistics, the International Biometric Society, the International Statistical Institute, the Bernoulli Society, and the Royal Statistical Society. Organizations from over one hundred countries are developing seminars, conferences, and educational activities to celebrate and promote statistics. Versta Research will be authoring a series of articles about making statistics accessible to everyday users, and offering related presentations to students and professional audiences during the year.
