We are looking at the percentage of eye color between male and female. I found this interesting because I was curious to see if there was a more common eye color in men or women. It appears that the eye color variables are independent because they are split pretty evenly between male and female. Dr. Vittorio Addona teaches statistics at Macalaster College in Minnesota. His research falls into three broad categories: survival analysis, sports statistics, and election audits. His doctoral work was in survival analysis, a statistical field often employed in medical studies of time-to-event data. Since arriving at Macalester, he has become interested in developing election audit procedures to verify computerized vote tallies. He has also published sports statistics research jointly with students, and accompanies them to conferences where they present their work. Vittorio teaches across the statistics curriculum: introductory modeling, probability, mathematical statistics, and an applied survival analysis course. He also serves on the college’s Community and Global Health steering committee.
Statistics has always had a vital role in sports, but it has traditionally been of the scorekeeping nature.Â The variety of attributes and events that can be quantified has expanded, and so has the amateur armchair analysis that picks out interesting tidbits from among the morass of data.Â Serious quantitative analysis of the same has been around for a couple of decades, but only recently has it been incorporated into player selection, compensation, strategy and tactics in a big way.
