Selected Applications in Statistics

Part of the Springer Texts in Statistics book series (STS)

Data come in many forms. In the broad view, the term “data” embraces all representations of information or knowledge. There is no single structure that can efficiently contain all of these representations. Some data are in free-form text (for example, the Federalist Papers, which was the subject of a famous statistical analysis), other data are in a hierarchical structure (for example, political units and subunits), and still other data are encodings of methods or algorithms. (This broad view is entirely consistent with the concept of a “stored-program computer”; the program is the data.)
