World Statistics Day

Posted in General by Julyan Arbel on 21 October 2011

As recommended by the United Nations Statistics Commission, a World Statistics Day is observed every 5 years. The first one occured last year, so no stats day to celebrate this year. Nevertheless, cheers to all of you readers: recent activity (a post by Robin about his article with Pierre, adverts by Xian, and a reference in a statistics blogs list) made it the busiest day ever for the 1+ year old Statisfaction:

    Given that October 20 was also the busiest day ever on the Og, I wonder if there is a technical issue with wordpress: my blog was visited 4,112 times on the 20th, 4,304 times on the 21st, but there is no increase in the number of visits of my different pages nor of queries. The only change is the high number of visits originating from wordpress… Sorry to tone down your enthusiasm!!!

      Right, the same for us. WordPress might have changed the way it counts different views…

    I went & checked the statistics for the Statistics Forum, but there was no such jump on the 20th, nor later… Interesting phenomenon that needs tracking.

    Here is a forum of wordpress bloggers being similarly concerned [as we are].

    Life without Statistical applications could not be imagined.
