Making sense of statistics
19 May 2011
Christina Pagel from CORU is a contributor to a new guide aimed at journalists and the general public called "Making Sense of Statistics". The guide is published by the charity Sense about Science in collaboration with the Royal Statistical Society.
This short guide is not meant to be a lesson in statistics
but more a source of questions that people can ask, and common pitfalls
to avoid, to help in interpreting the numbers presented in the media and
elsewhere as 'fact'.
