TitleReferee's report by George Ballard Mathews, on a paper 'The influence of bias of personal equation in statistics of ill-defined qualities: an experimental study' by George Udny Yule
DateDecember 1905
DescriptionSectional Committee: Mathematics

The paper could be accepted for publication in a condensed form. The detailed explanations and especially the tables are not of sufficient permanent value to justify the expense of printing them. The illustrations might be retained, most if not all the tables might be omitted, their noteworthy features being briefly stated. The paper might be reduced to half its present length without sacrificing anything of permanent value.

[Published in Proceedings of the Royal Society A, 1906].
