As part of the ASA (American Statistical Association) led World of Statistics campaign, that took place in 2013, Plymouth University in association with the CensusAtSchool project created a world stats quiz; with some questions based on our international CensusAtSchool questionnaire results.

Although the Stats2013AtSchool site no longer exists the quiz still does and can be accessed using the link below.
