These rankings are even weirder than the econ rankings. There are
some, but very few, biostat programs mentioned; however I could not
find biostat among any other disciplines. Without Harvard or UNC
Chapel Hill or Michigan Ann Arbor, one cannot have a complete picture
of the biostat world. Neither the departments of mathematics that
grant Ph.D.s in statistics are mentioned. And if there are any
epidemiology or public health departments that publish and grant
Ph.D.s in biostatistics, they are obviously omitted, as well.

I wonder if Mr. President (aka Tony) would have any comments as to how
it happened that biostat is nowhere to be found. I am sure that
whoever decided to do half-samples to provide a sense of confidence
intervals must have talked to statisticians first.
