The Focus of the Session:


The estimation of parameters and variables is central to much of statistics. It is important to consider not just point estimation but also how the uncertainty in such estimates may be assessed.

In addition to estimation, in this session a group of speakers will discuss clear research questions, what data looks like, uncertainty variation and confidence intervals.
