Some Wikipedians have formed this collaboration resource and group, whose aim is:
This page and its subpages contain their suggestions and various resources; it is hoped that this project will help to focus the efforts of other Wikipedians interested in the topic. If you would like to help, please join the project, inquire on the talk page and see the to do lists below.
This WikiProject covers articles related to statistics, including the history of statistics and biographies of statisticians. Articles within its scope include those in:
An expandable tree view of subcategories of Category:Statistics is available at CategoryTree>Statistics.
As of 7 April 2020, there are 4,089 articles within the scope of WikiProject Statistics, of which 3 are featured and 18 are good articles. This makes up 0.07% of the articles on Wikipedia, 0.03% of all featured articles and lists, and 0.06% of all good articles. Including nonarticle pages, such as talk pages, redirects, categories, et cetera, there are 10,040 pages in the project.
A ranking of articles on statistical topics by recent page views is at Wikipedia:WikiProject_Statistics/Popular_pages.
The list of statistics topics is being extended to include existing articles not previously listed and any new or unlisted statisticsrelated articles should be added. The list contains over 2750 items, including some redirects (18 February 2013: was 2642 on 17 October 2011; 2233 on 29 July 2009; 1731 on 31 December 2008; and 945 on 22 May 2008). The list is not at present very sophisticated and this project could undertake general improvements given that lists are far more versatile than categories. Look at lists of mathematics topics for examples.
Some priority articles that the project hopes to make progress with are those in:
Here are general guidelines for different types of articles in the project.
{{WPStatistics  importance=  class=}}
{{maths rating  field=probability and statistics  importance=  class=}}
Here are some tasks awaiting attention:

An automatically generated list of new articles is available here, based on these rules.
Please feel free to list here any new statisticsrelated articles that you create or come across (newer articles at the top, please) and also add them to list of statistics topics.
Any new articles that have an interesting or unusual fact in them, are at least over 1,000 characters, do not have any dispute templates on them, and cite their sources, should be suggested for the Did you know? box on the Wikipedia Main Page.
Please add new categories to this list as well as here.

These are the articles that have been edited the most within the last three days. Last updated 7 April 2020 by HotArticlesBot.
The assessment is done in a distributed fashion through parameters in the {{WikiProject Statistics}}
project banner; this causes the articles to be placed in the appropriate subcategories of Category:Statistics articles by quality and Category:Statistics articles by importance.
Currently 5,033 pages have been tagged with the {{WikiProject Statistics}}
template. Of these, 35 (1%) have not been assessed for quality and 221 (4%) have not been assessed for importance.
A log of recent changes in assessment is available here.
