Ethics in statistics: opportunities and challenges

Research output: Book/ReportEdited Book/Anthologypeer-review


Data plays a vital role in different parts of our lives. In the world of big data, and policy determined by a variety of statistical artifacts, discussions around the ethics of data gathering, manipulation and presentation are increasingly important. Ethics in Statistics aims to make a significant contribution to that debate. The processes of gathering data through sampling, summarising of the findings, and extending results to a population, need to be checked via an ethical prospective, as well as a statistical one. Statistical learning without ethics can be harmful for mankind.

This edited collection brings together contributors in the field of data science, data analytics and statistics, to share their thoughts about the role of ethics in different aspects of statistical learning.
