Parliament Counts for the Devolved Elections 2016

We are asking our Welsh and Scottish fellows to write to their local candidates asking them to commit to attend a statistics training workshop if elected on 5 May 2016.

These workshops will cover a range of areas including; probabilities, surveys and data presentation. It will be entry-level training, with a specific focus on Welsh and Scottish policy issues, to outline the good use of statistics, and help avoid some of the common pitfalls when dealing with public data sets.
