1. ## statistics forum?

not sure where to post this so general banter it is:

does anyone know the location of a decent stats forum, i need to understand several stats tests which deal with space-time interactions (knox & mantel tests) & i don't seem to be able to find any example workings anywhere on the web...

alternatively perhaps a fellow hexus member is a stats wizard and can take me under their mathematical wing

heres hoping

cheers
dan

ps. MOD's if this in the wrong place plz move me

2. never could get maths...
space-time interactions??!! well, i'v noticed a small rift in the fabric of space-time, centered somewhere on the floor of my room. yeah, its so strange...all my clothes are just drawn to it and can't be moved...weird or what...

3. ROFL! I was really good at Maths at school, and work in accounts now, so I can try to help you. I done the statistics module with ease at A-Level but didn't finish the whole course.

Never heard of Knox and Mantel though. What's that?

4. I've got a stat for you baby... 0.3% of all road accidents in Canada involve a Moose.

Shall I do the punch line?

Ok...

I didn't even know they could drive!

Oh man, you just can't buy punch lines like that.

as for knox & mantel they're measures from epidemiology i believe - they measure how clustered events are in space and time - a measure of epidemic

thoughts?

I may not be the person to ask then...

10. 73% of statistics are made up on the spot

Oh, people can come up with statistics to prove anything. 14% of people know that.

13. There are so many forums for 'Lies' and 'Damn Lies' there must be one for statistics.

14. Stats 2 (A level maths)...doing the coursework now.
Hate stats so much...just so boring and tedious.

15. can't pretend to understand this...looks like its useful tho!!

16. I know I'm crapping your thread, but I really hate stats. My mind is set up for Physics and Mechanics, and I really hate the way that stats work in a totally different way. I can easily work out A-Level Physics problems in my head, but Stats problems really confuse the hell out of me. I think the whole subject is clearly flawed.
