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'.
