UnderWithin each of these branches, there are finer categoriesbranches that further divide the fieldmethods. I am having trouble drawing a parallel inwith statistics. What would be the main branches of statistics (and sub-branches)? A perfect partition is likely not possible, but anything is better than a big blank map :).
