Welcome to WikiProject Statistics
Some Wikipedians have formed this collaboration resource and group, whose aim is:
 To improve Wikipedia's coverage of statistics and the organization of information and articles on this topic.
This page and its subpages contain their suggestions and various resources; it is hoped that this project will help to focus the efforts of other Wikipedians interested in the topic. If you would like to help, please join the project, inquire on the talk page and see the to do lists below.
This WikiProject covers articles related to
 List of statistics topics
 Category:Statistics and its subcategories
 Category:Statisticians and its subcategories
An expandable tree view of subcategories of Category:Statistics is available at CategoryTree>Statistics.
As of 5 November 2024, there are 5,254 articles within the scope of WikiProject Statistics, of which 3 are featured and 22 are good articles. This makes up 0.08% of the articles on Wikipedia, 0.03% of all featured articles and lists, and 0.05% of all good articles. Including nonarticle pages, such as talk pages, redirects, categories, etc., there are 13,448 pages in the project.
A ranking of articles on statistical topics by recent page views is at Wikipedia:WikiProject_Statistics/Popular_pages.
The
Some priority articles that the project hopes to make progress with are those in:
 Category:Statistics stubs (314 articles)
 Category:Statistics articles needing expert attention (27 articles)
Guidelines
Here are general guidelines for different types of articles in the project.
 Consider adding one of these navigational boxes to the end of the article:
 {{Statistical hypothesis testing)
 {{Least squares and regression analysis}} (example: Nonlinear regression)
 {{Randomized block design)
 {{Medical research studies}} (example: Randomized controlled trial)
 {{Statistics journals}} (example: The American Statistician)
 {{ProbDistributions}} (example: Binomial distribution)
 {{Theory of probability distributions}} (example: Probability mass function)
 {{
 Tag the discussion page with
{{
WPStatisticsimportance=  class=}} and (if there is substantial mathematics content)
{{
maths ratingfield=probability and statistics  importance=  class=}} using appropriate values for the class and importance parameters as described here.
General statistics articles
 Use one or more subcategory of Category:Statistics
 Tag stubs with {{statisticsstub}}
Probability distributions
 Suggestions regarding the structure of articles about probability distributions are here
 Include either of these infoboxes (feel free to leave some parameters blank):
 {{Infobox probability distribution}} (e.g., Negative binomial distribution)
 {{Infobox probability distribution 2}} (e.g., Geometric distribution)
 Add an appropriate subcategory of Category:Probability distributions
 Tag stubs with {{probabilitystub}}
Biographies of statisticians
 Include {{infobox scientist}} with all known information.
 Add Category:Statisticians or one of its subcategories
 Make sure you follow the policy on Biographies of living persons
 Add {{WPBiography}} to the article's discussion page (include "living=yes" to the template for living persons)
 Tag stubs with {{statisticianstub}}, {{UKstatisticianstub}} or {{USstatisticianstub}}

Article assessment
Statistics WikiProject
The assessment is done in a distributed fashion through parameters in the {{WikiProject Statistics}}
project banner; this causes the articles to be placed in the appropriate subcategories of Category:Statistics articles by quality and Category:Statistics articles by importance.
Currently 6,748 pages have been tagged with the {{WikiProject Statistics}}
template. Of these, 4 (0%) have not been assessed for quality and 905 (13%) have not been assessed for importance.
A log of recent changes in assessment is available here.
