Ask the Statistician: Best practices for explaining statistical results


In my last post in the Ask the Statistician series, we heard statisticians at the Analytics 2013 conference  discuss what types of statistical techniques they use to solve their business problems.

Check out their suggestions in the video below. They might also benefit you in your current role.

And check back soon for more upcoming posts and videos featuring our statisticians.
