Dear Statalisters,

following Nick's interesting posting, I have found some possible interesting
articles - related at large to stratistic topics often showing up in
Statalist - provided from the same source:

- pag 53: Missing data 

- pagg. 55-58: Census sensitivity 

I wish you All the Best for the approaching Christmas (and All the Best as
well for those who are non intended to celebrate it).

Kind Regards,

Carlo

The Economist's double Christmas issue has a nice story under that
heading. 

The story is open to non-subscribers at 

http://www.economist.com/printedition/displayStory.cfm?Story_ID=10278643

Readers of Edward Tufte's books, or similar, will find the details very
familiar, but even they might like to grab copies of the images for
later use. 

FWIW, I don't sign up to all the praise for Florence Nightingale's
graph, some of which seems to spill over from respect for her other
achievements. The underlying data seem to show a mix of seasonal
influences and other 
influences, and might well be much clearer as a more standard time
series 
graph. I've not seen the raw data to try that. 

The more important message to all you frustrated model[l]ers is to try
graphing your data too!
