Stat-JR: a software environment for promoting interactive complex statistical modelling



The ideas behind Stat-JR (pronounced "stature") were the brainchild of Jon Rasbash and have been developed since September 2009 by Bill Browne and colleagues at both the Centre for Multilevel Modelling, in the University of Bristol, and Electronics and Computer Science, at the University of Southampton, as part of the ESRC nodes eStat, Lemma II and Lemma III, and more recently as part of the ESRC research grant The use of interactive electronic-books in the teaching and application of modern quantitative methods in the social sciences.

Stat-JR has been developed using the Python programming language with the view that statistical users of all abilities can contribute to the development of new templates to answer specific questions.

We would like to take the opportunity to acknowledge Python, MathJaX and the various Python and JavaScript packages that comes as part of the Stat-JR download. We would like to acknowledge the hard work done by the developers of all these free software packages.
