Measuring galaxy clustering has been a long time the main tool for understanding the large-scale structure of the Universe. In the early days it allowed us to understand the main features of the structure, its dynamics and evolution. Nowadays we are seeking for much finer details in clustering -- a good example is the discovery of the traces of baryonic oscillations. As those traces are tiny, it is very important to assure these are real -- we must know well how our statistics behave. I will try to convince you that sometimes the estimation of errors might be interesting, too.
