NNN Columns

Periodically, the NNN website will feature columns on quantitative issues written by members of the organization. Below you will find a listing of the columns that have been published here to date.

A column devoted to ratios in all their guises: indices, coefficients, percentages, rates, scales, conversions, etc. Ratios are comparisons between the relative size of two quantities, a simple idea which – surprisingly – underlies much of the way we use numbers to communicate.
