Statistics e-book

The Statistics e-book is a compilation of all the statistics columns published in Research News over the past five years.

The statistics column was first launched in mid 2004 and has proven to be essential reading for researchers around the country. Following anecdotal reports that researchers were referring back to the column in training programs, the Society decided to publish the e-book so that it would be quicker and easier to reference the columns, either for personal professional development or in formal settings.

The contributors to the Statistics e-book include:

  • Gerrie Roberts, who lectures in statistics in the Monash University MBA program and is a senior analyst at Forethought Research
  • Scott MacLean, who works at Nulink Analytics and is a member of the Research News editorial advisory group
  • Tim Bock, who is managing director of Numbers and adjunct research fellow of the Australian School of Business
  • John Rossiter, research professor at the University of Wollongong Alan Simpson, principal analyst at Forethought Research.

‘Special thanks must go to Gerrie Roberts, who has been our most regular contributor over the past five years, and has delivered many thought-provoking pieces to stimulate discussion in the profession,' said AMSRS CEO, Elissa Molloy. ‘Gerrie also generously dedicated many hours of her time to ordering, indexing and proofreading this e-book.'

Professionally, Roberts combines her two passions as a vocational educator in statistics at Monash University and as a practitioner advising some of the region's best regarded services companies. She has lectured in statistics for more than 18 years and, as a senior analyst at Forethought Research, she has worked on the application of multivariate statistics across a range of industries for many years.
