Justice Counts ASA-CRC Series on Statistical Reasoning in Science and Society Series
Auteurs : Price Megan, Mejia Robin
The book will cover a range of cases where statistical analyses helped document human rights problems, determine the value of evidence, or understand the needs of victims. It will also briefly describe how statistical programs can be used to perpetrate human rights abuses and the need for safeguards. The book will be organized as a series of chapters that can stand alone, but that together highlight the need for statistical thinking in a wide variety of human rights contexts. Each chapter will have a clear structure and compelling storyline, and will highlight a particular statistical concept and method in an engaging way.
