This Annenberg series of 32 video modules introduces statistical topics in real-world context, visiting locations where people from all walks of life use statistics in their work. Starting with descriptive statistics, the course continues through probability and inference. Examples range from finding patterns in lightning strikes to examining possible genetic resistance to deadly Lassa fever in West Africa, to linking DDT to the decline of peregrine falcons. Scientist and researcher Pardis Sabeti hosts the series.
