Happy World Statistics Day!! This marks the first World Stats Day and unfortunately for many Canadians today is bitter sweet. If you are Canadian or involved in research of any kind you will know that the Government of Prime Minister Stephen Harper scrapped the mandatory long form census. Having used this data I can say that it is very sad to think of all of the potential evidence based solutions that could come from continued use of the long form census. Hopefully the census will be back with only one missing time point, but until them, here is great video in honour of the census.
