“Estimation statistics” is a fancy way of saying that you are estimating population values based on your sample data. Let’s think back to our sample ice cream data. First, let’s assume that we had a true random sample of 35 people on this globe and that our full target population is every human alive (7 billion people). Let’s say that 37% of people in our sample said that vanilla is their favorite flavor. Can we safely extrapolate that 37% of all people in the world also think that vanilla is the best? Is that the true value of the world? Well, we can’t say with 100% confidence, but–using inferential statistical techniques such as the “confidence interval”–I can provide a range of people that prefer vanilla with some level of confidence.

The Sacred Grove of Oshogbo was one place I had been looking forward to visiting in Nigeria. As prevalent as indigenous religions still are in West Africa, it is often hard to find public expressions of them in towns and cities; the Christianity brought by European slavers and colonialists has taken root and pushed most of these religions out of mainstream life. But in the Sacred Grove shrines honor all the local deities, including Obatala, the god of creation, Ogun, the god of iron, and Oshun, the goddess of water, whose aqueous essence is made manifest by the river running through the trees. The place is unique in the Yoruba religion, and that intrigued me.
