Principal component regression is a powerful technique from high-dimensional statistics. In this post I offer an alternative interpretation of the procedure as a way of generating PCA loadings for new covariates.

The Countdown numbers game is notoriously fiendish. That said, with the right computational tricks, it can be solved using only basic coding abilities.

Hiding in the shadow of the central limit theorm is a lesser-know, but still fascinating aspect of statistics. Read this post to what this is and how we can use it.

Struggling to find 'the one'? Perhaps statistics can help. In this post we introduce a pair of simple procedures which—when followed—can optimise your chances of finding love.
