The Museum of Statistical Anomalies by Greta Heiss

April 7th, 2010 8:29 PM / Location: 43.130194,-77.60205

INSTRUCTIONS: Find a statistical outlier. Capture it and create a display for it that elucidates its irregularity. Also, name it if necessary.

Work with other players to create the Museum of Statistical Anomalies by combining your displays.


Using the root data here and the magic of Excel and Pivot Tables, I came up with the following:

Lead Singer(s) Number of Songs
Lennon 95
McCartney 89
Harrison 41
Various Lennon McCartney Combos 38
No Vocals 13
Starkey 12
Lennon, McCartney and Harrison 7
Lennon, McCartney, Harrison and Starkey 3
Sutcliff 2
Lennon and Harrison 1

Ok so, in graph form we've got:

and the outlier? Ringo.

Anyone want to collaborate on the display?

I approve of this diagram. for two reasons. one it looks really cool! two It is really well done. I kinda wish there was a funny story about it though.

Thanks! Yeah... it was getting late and I got lazy. Sorry. I will strive to be less lazy in the future.

The "With Absolutely No Help From My Friends" gap made me laugh.
Great effort!
