This week’s focus is the potential dangers of statistics if misused.
Here are some ideas for your post to get you started:
Mark Twain popularized the phrase, “There are three kinds of lies: Lies, damned lies, and statistics.” What do you think this phrase means? Share your thoughts with your classmates in Yellowdig. Give your post a hashtag (e.g., #statslies).
Which outside resource (image, video, article) is a good example of when statistics are interpreted incorrectly—either intentionally or unintentionally? Share the link within your post. How might the average person recognize they are being led astray?
