AbstractThe outbreak of Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS) posed a threat to people in many parts of the world, particularly Toronto, Singapore, Beijing, Hong Kong, and Taiwan. Most cities were totally unprepared for this disease. In this article, we provide several statistical problems on SARS based on publicly available data. Students can learn various statistical methods by use of this application and thus enhance their skill in statistical reasoning. © 2006 American Statistical Association.
