Probability density plots for the Laplace distribution. Pierre-Simon Laplace made the first attempt to deduce a rule for the combination of observations from the principles of the theory of probabilities. He represented the law of probability of errors by a curve and deduced a formula for the mean of three observations. Laplace in noted that the frequency of an error could be expressed as an exponential function of its magnitude once its sign was disregarded. Lagrange proposed a parabolic distribution of errors in Laplace in published his second law of errors wherein he noted that the frequency of an error was proportional to the exponential of the square of its magnitude.

Annals of Probability to appear, Google Scholar Gauss had used the method in his famous prediction of the location of the dwarf planet Ceres. The observations that Gauss based his calculations on were made by the Italian monk Piazzi.
The method of least squares was preceded by the use a median regression slope. This method minimizing the sum of the absolute deviances. A method of estimating this slope was invented by Roger Joseph Boscovich in which he applied to astronomy. The term probable error der wahrscheinliche Fehler - the median deviation from the mean - was introduced in by the German astronomer Frederik Wilhelm Bessel.
Other contributors to the theory of errors were Ellis , De Morgan , Glaisher , and Giovanni Schiaparelli In the 19th century authors on statistical theory included Laplace, S. Gustav Theodor Fechner used the median Centralwerth in sociological and psychological phenomena.
Francis Galton used the English term median for the first time in having earlier used the terms middle-most value in and the medium in The only data sets available to him that he was able to show were normally distributed were birth rates. Development of modern statistics[ edit ] Although the origins of statistical theory lie in the 18th-century advances in probability, the modern field of statistics only emerged in the lateth and earlyth century in three stages.
The first wave, at the turn of the century, was led by the work of Francis Galton and Karl Pearson , who transformed statistics into a rigorous mathematical discipline used for analysis, not just in science, but in industry and politics as well.
The second wave of the s and 20s was initiated by William Sealy Gosset , and reached its culmination in the insights of Ronald Fisher. This involved the development of better design of experiments models, hypothesis testing and techniques for use with small data samples. The final wave, which mainly saw the refinement and expansion of earlier developments, emerged from the collaborative work between Egon Pearson and Jerzy Neyman in the s.
The original logo of the Royal Statistical Society , founded in The first statistical bodies were established in the early 19th century. The Royal Statistical Society was founded in and Florence Nightingale , its first female member, pioneered the application of statistical analysis to health problems for the furtherance of epidemiological understanding and public health practice.
However, the methods then used would not be considered as modern statistics today. The Oxford scholar Francis Ysidro Edgeworth 's book, Metretike: or The Method of Measuring Probability and Utility dealt with probability as the basis of inductive reasoning, and his later works focused on the 'philosophy of chance'. Although statistical surveys of social conditions had started with Charles Booth 's "Life and Labour of the People in London" and Seebohm Rowntree 's "Poverty, A Study of Town Life" , Bowley's, key innovation consisted of the use of random sampling techniques.
His contributions to the field included introducing the concepts of standard deviation , correlation , regression and the application of these methods to the study of the variety of human characteristics - height, weight, eyelash length among others. He found that many of these could be fitted to a normal curve distribution. The actual weight was pounds: the median guess was The guesses were markedly non-normally distributed.
Karl Pearson , the founder of mathematical statistics. Galton's publication of Natural Inheritance in sparked the interest of a brilliant mathematician, Karl Pearson ,  then working at University College London , and he went on to found the discipline of mathematical statistics. His work grew to encompass the fields of biology , epidemiology , anthropometry, medicine and social history.
In , with Walter Weldon , founder of biometry , and Galton, he founded the journal Biometrika as the first journal of mathematical statistics and biometry. His work, and that of Galton's, underpins many of the 'classical' statistical methods which are in common use today, including the Correlation coefficient , defined as a product-moment;  the method of moments for the fitting of distributions to samples; Pearson's system of continuous curves that forms the basis of the now conventional continuous probability distributions; Chi distance a precursor and special case of the Mahalanobis distance  and P-value , defined as the probability measure of the complement of the ball with the hypothesized value as center point and chi distance as radius.
He also founded the statistical hypothesis testing theory ,  Pearson's chi-squared test and principal component analysis. The second wave of mathematical statistics was pioneered by Ronald Fisher who wrote two textbooks, Statistical Methods for Research Workers , published in and The Design of Experiments in , that were to define the academic discipline in universities around the world.
He also systematized previous results, putting them on a firm mathematical footing. In his seminal paper The Correlation between Relatives on the Supposition of Mendelian Inheritance , the first use to use the statistical term, variance.
