We often think of H.G. Wells as a pioneer of science fiction. His most famous works inclue The Time Machine and The War of the Worlds. However, he also wrote extensively about the social and political ideas. With the scope of his writing, it is no surprise that statistics would come up.
Here's today's quote to ponder, direct from Mr. Wells himself:
"Statistical thinking will one day be as necessary for efficient citizenship as the ability to read and write."
Do you agree? Have we reached the point where statistical thinking is as important as reading and writing? I look forward to your comments.
