Shawn Devers on Roslings The Joy of Stats

I’m Shawn Devers, a statistics grad student and Hans Rosling groupie. Hans Rosling is a Swedish researcher who has been mentioned on aea365 a number of times before

Rad Resource – The Joy of Stats Video: Working with the BBC, Rosling produced a one-hour documentary about the joy of stats. The best part is he actually makes stats joyous, exciting, enticing – after watching this, being a statistician is downright sexy. It is now available for free streaming on Rosling’s website and I can’t recommend it enough. Should be required viewing for every stats student – and for those of us who are just stats geeks.

I’ll keep this short so you have plenty of time to watch!
