JMP® Foreword

The statistical discovery magazine. From SAS.

Wicked problems. We bet you can name one or two. They’re problems that are difficult or impossible to solve – for instance, pandemics and poverty, or sustainability and social injustice. Our world is full of them. This complimentary magazine shows how people and organizations are using statistics to untangle challenging issues that will, in turn, help us solve some of our thorniest dilemmas.
