Congratulations to Jonas Wallin, Senior lecturer in Statistics at Lund University School of Economics and Management (LUSEM). He has been awarded the prize of Statistics Advocate 2022 (Statistikfrämjare 2022), by the Swedish Statistical Society.

Jonas Wallin was awarded the prize together with Måns Magnusson, Assistant professor in Statistics at Uppsala University and Jens Finnäs, CEO of Newsworthy and founder of Journalism++ Stockholm.

The trio received the prize for their advanced statistical model that accurately foresaw the results of the Swedish general elections in 2022.

Their work can be seen on the website Botten Ada and is a combination of polls and electoral results over the last twenty years using a Bayesian model, with the intention of answering the question:

“Who would win the parliamentary elections if they were being held today?”

“The work continues, and we are of course very happy about being acknowledged like this,” says Jonas Wallin, hinting at further developments to be expected with Botten Ada.
