1. Paul Johnson slides on 'UK Price indices Review'
ONS's user insight and innovation team has asked if the Good Practice User Panel would be willing to help them out with some user research. They've asked if I can pass on the following message about their short survey (it takes less than five minutes to complete):
"Thank you for your interest in participating in user research at the Office for National Statistics. From time to time we undertake different types of user research such as user testing, user interviews or questionnaires. To be involved in this research in future, please could you complete this short survey. We will then be in touch when any suitable research takes place.
If you have any queries about this survey please email firstname.lastname@example.org and we will get back to you as soon as possible.
Greenfield Challenge by Wiley
In his 2009 Box Medal Acceptance Address Tony Greenfield challenged the members of ENBIS with the following words:
My challenge to you is that you will tell some audience about work you have done, and completed successfully because you used a statistical method. But that audience must be of people who are not statisticians.
And you will have spoken to those people through publications that are for the wider public, through magazines or newspapers, or from a public platform. You might even write a short story or a play.
That is my challenge: Tell the world, outside your circle, of work you have done, and done successfully because you used statistics.
With the kind support of Wiley ENBIS decided to pick up the glove thrown by Tony: in 2010 the Greenfield Challenge sponsored by Wiley was launched as an ongoing ENBIS activity and for the first time ever the prize was awarded at ENBIS-11 in Coimbra (Portugal). The winner was Richard Marsh (UK).
