Update on a StackExchange site for statistical analysis


2 June 2010


About six weeks ago, I proposed that there should be a Stack Exchange site for questions on data analysis, statistics, data mining, machine learning, etc. I can finally report that there has been substantial progress on this.

The formal proposal is now at Area 51 where the scope of the new site is being developed and voted on in a democratic way. The site has been in a private beta state for a week or so, but is now open for anyone to join in.

So if you’re interested in this proposed site for questions/answers on statistical analysis, please head over to Area 51 and join in the discussion and voting on what the site should cover. It would be a good idea to first read the FAQ so you understand how the system works.
