Joachim Schork – Author & Founder of Statistics Globe
Hi, my name is Joachim Schork and I’m the guy behind Statistics Globe.
On this page, I’ll give you a brief overview about my background in statistics and why I started this website.
I have spent a lot of time to increase my skills in statistics and programming within the last 15 years. My academic career started with a bachelor in Educational Science at the University of Tübingen, Germany.
During my Bachelor studies, I fell in love with statistics the first time. I focused as much as possible on statistical research methods for the monitoring of students’ skills and the assessment of educational interventions.
Due to my increasing interest in statistics and the corresponding software tools, I decided to focus even more on this field in my Master studies. For that reason, I moved to Trier University where I have finished a Master of Survey Statistics and an EMOS Certificate in 2017.
Afterwards, I started a job as Microdata Expert located at STATEC, the national statistical institute of Luxembourg.
This job position was definitely another boost for my statistical skills, since I was able to work on many different data sets such as the Statistics on Income and Living Conditions (SILC), the Labour Force Survey (LFS), or the Business and Leisure Tourism Survey.
In discussions with colleagues or at research conferences, I noticed how important it is to exchange with other statisticians and researchers of different fields and this was definitely one of the main reasons why I started Statistics Globe.
While working at STATEC, I also started a side-business for online marketing and webdesign. This business was initially a part-time job, but at the end of 2019 I decided to quit my job at STATEC to dedicate all my time to my own business.
Since then, Statistics Globe is not only a way to exchange with other programmers and researchers; It also allows me to combine both of my interests (statistics and webdesign).
