Professor Simon Jackman from the Department of Political Science blogs on observations from the intersection of politics, statistics, computing and even a dash of graphic design. An expert on statistical methods and data analysis in the social sciences, Jackman routinely blogs on polls, sampling and electoral matters. In the Fall of 2007, Jackman is blogging regularly on the upcoming federal election in his country of origin, Australia, dispensing a mix of rigorous analysis, wit and elegant statistical graphs tracking public opinion and fluctuations in the on-line election betting markets over the campaign.
