Annoying statisticians (for a worthy cause)

Jump to: navigation, search

I saw a few posters today suggesting that people mark both male and female on the NZ census (which is tomorrow), in support of trans rights and related issues. I just did the census online and thus didn't have that option, but what do you make of the idea?

Nonbinary and intersex stuff isn't really my bailiwick, as I am neither. I'm always in favor of annoying statisticians, though.

Favorite factoid regarding people getting creative with the census: as I recall, in the 2000 US census, several hundred people claimed to use the "subway" in Cincinnati, despite the fact that Cincinnati has no subway.

I use a "subway": the tunnel under the road by the railway station. There are no transportation questions in our census, however.

What did those poor, innocent statisticians ever do to you?

Weighted regression.
