Presentation 4A3. On Promoting Statistical Consulting in Statistics Education/Training

James H. Matis (USA)


Presentation Abstract
In many universities in the US and other developed countries, statistics faculty are encouraged to become involved in statistical consulting in addition to statistical research and service. In fact, at most land-grant universities in the US statistics graduate students are required to participate in statistical consulting activity. Statistical consulting and collaborative, interdisciplinary research are not as common in developing countries. This paper presents some of the author's experiences in promoting statistical consulting and interdisciplinary research in India, during five official visits sponsored by US and international agencies over the past 20 years. One of the topics in greatest demand during each of the visits was how to enhance statistical consulting among statistical practitioners, educators and students.
