Statistics Corner: Call for submissions

Stats Corner

Statistics inherently lends itself to storytelling, but so much of academic publishing revolves around technical constructions and highly specialized esoteric methodology. Hence, I want to introduce and solicit submissions to the new Liaison Statistics Corner, a place for us to share statistical stories and musings with colleagues across Canada. Do you have a story to tell us about an interesting dataset? Have you ever designed an experiment just for fun? Is there a distribution or statistical test that you think is underappreciated? If so, send a short write-up to Liaison via the SSC website:  And going forward, if you have a comment or rebuttal to a given article, consider sending a letter to the editor at to keep the discussion going. We live in a big country, so grab a coffee, pull up a chair, and join me in the Statistics Corner.

To begin this new feature in Liaison, I have added my own short story about the recent heat dome in Western Canada. How extreme were these extreme temperatures? Check out the short article to find out.
