Deborah Stone, Why Statistics Should be Taught as Ethics, Not Math


Professor Deborah Stone will lead a graduate seminar at the Centre for Ethics on March 22 from 12:30-2pm in the Larkin Building, Room 200.

From simple tallies to complex quantitative analyses, counting necessarily requires value choices. Historically, measurement has always been intimately connected to notions of distributive justice and procedural fairness. This seminar explores some of these connections and what it means to count with integrity.

Admission is free by registration and open to the public. Register here.

This event is possible because of the generous support of Paul Cadario, SPPG Advisory Board member and Senior Fellow at U of T, as well as the generous support of the Departments of Economics and Political Science at U of T.
