Journal of Obnoxious Statistics


The Journal of Obnoxious Statistics (JOBS) is created specially for Lars Lyberg by his friends and colleagues to commemorate the 20th anniversary of the Journal of Official Statistics (JOS).

It is a Liber Amicorum in which we honour and thank Lars Lyberg as friend and as editor. It is also a spoof, which means that the contributions are intended to be funny, but not necessarily scientific, nor reproducible. In fact our main inspiration were the Journal of Irreproducible Results and the Annals of Improbable Research.

The readers explicitly are explicitly warned and urged not to believe a single word they read in JOBS. Also, any resemblances to existing persons, organizations and journals are purely fictional.

Have fun reading the Journal of Obnoxious Statistics!
