Probably influenced by Tyler’s post on Radiohead, my last post ended by providing computer code for "regression-heads" to replicate some numbers. But what is the right term for those I just called (affectionately) regression-heads?
- Ian Ayres would call you a Super Cruncher
- Steve Levitt would suggest you are a Freakonomist
- If this were the Society for American Baseball Research you would be a Sabermetrician
- Our friends in finance would call you a quant.
Perhaps readers of this blog are Marginal Revolters? Other ideas?
(Yes, I’ve heard Econometrician.)
