“The Statistical Crisis in Science—and How to Move Forward”

Using examples ranging from elections to birthdays to policy analysis, Professor Andrew Gelman will discuss ways in which statistical methods have failed, leading to a replication crisis in much of science, as well as directions for improvements through statistical methods that make use of more information.

The lecture will be followed by a question and answer session with the audience. There will be a reception immediately following the lecture.
