Author(s): Sir David R. Cox*+
Companies: Nuffield College
Address: , Oxford, , United Kingdom

The importance and interest of statistics stems in large part from the wide range of applications of statistical ideas across the natural and social sciences and beyond. A major challenge is to preserve some unity of ideas while recognizing the genuine distinctiveness of individual applications. Illustrations will be given from a number of fields of application and the broad principles involved discussed, including the impact of computational developments. The role of foundational issues will be briefly mentioned.
