Cause and Effect: Attendance by the Numbers

Last month we went back to Arboretum.  Last month we publicized on-line sign up for our section meetings.  Last month FDA representative Scott MacIntire talked about how to achieve compliance.  Last month our attendance soared.

Which one of these variables had the most impact?

In 2012 and 2013 all our meetings were at the Arboretum.

Every year we have a speaker from FDA. (In February 2013 the guest speaker was Scott MacIntire.

Perhaps this is normal variability.  Perhaps the cause for the sudden surge is due to “the last thing that changed.”  I.e. on-line registration.

I’d like to hear your opinion.
