Indeed it is. Sanctioned by the UN and everything. So if you see a statistician today, give her or him a big hug!

Excited about the big day, Balducci?

99.9% of people don't know it is statistics day

34% of people will believe any statistic they are told, FACT!

It's a good day to buy an insurance policy - with all the actuaries drunk or partying...

Cool! If sanctioned by the UN that means that if people ignore it then it won't matter to them!

What are the odds on that happening?

I thought that there was only a 78.2% chance that today was International Statistics Day.

You're aware, no doubt, that 83.7% of all statistics are made up on the spot.

Old story, but it salutes the work of statisticians in WW2:

Hmm... what are the odds of that?
You must be smarter than the tools you are using...

Well I missed celebrating this big day - drat! What are the odds?

Chances are probably 100% I wouldn't have celebrated this day. It was the course I struggled with the most in University. No offence to the stats people out there.
