Nate Silver’s unprecedented accurate prediction of state-by-state election results in the most recent presidential race was a watershed moment for the public awareness of statistics. While data gathering and analysis has become a massive industry in the past decade, it hasn’t always been as well covered in the press or publicly accessible as it is now.

Knowledge of statistics and quantitative analysis techniques is more valuable than ever. From biostatisticians to politicians and economists, people in every field are using statistics to further their careers and knowledge. These sites are some of the most useful, informative, and comprehensive on the web covering stats and quantitative analysis.
