How do we deal with outliers?

This post provides the notes for an Ignite presentation I ran at the Christchurch Mathematical Association (CMA) 2015 Statistics Day on dealing with outliers. If you are not familiar with an Ignite presentation, it is 20 slides that auto-advance every 15 seconds for a total presentation of five minutes!

I’ve finally decided to post my slides and notes from this presentation (nearly four years later) as it gave me an opportunity to try out a text-to-voice tool for creating videos. Play the recreation of my ignite talk below! It is actually less than five minutes as “robo” me does not waffle and does not need 15 seconds per slide 🙂
