Statistics don't #Lie -- #Liars use Statistics
Apparently @realDonaldTrump started a new political trend. Speaking like real united States Americans who, from time to time, tend to cuss up a storm.
When selectively used, and not simply used to #BePopular various swear words can be very effective in delivering a message.
The question the user must ask is When is What word appropriate, When and Why is it being used before Whom?
If a person delivers the exact same words to very different audiences the results will also differ. Thus Statistics NEVER Lie. Liars USE Statistics.
#Statisticians know that the results of a survey depend upon two very important elements"
Let's talk about two fictitious alcohol survey/statistics
Survey one in both instances asks the same question; Is alcohol consumption beneficial?
Both surveys each ask 100 people from several different locations.
Survey ONE asks 100 people exiting from various alcohol-serving establishments (bars, restaurants, liquor stores).
Survey TWO asks 100 people during a church service at a variety of churches, alcoholics meeting and such.
As you would expect, the famous "9 out of 10" people in each instance are likely to produce quite the opposite results.
People can make any survey reveal any result they get paid to produce, by simply asking the "proper" set of people. So, the next time you see or hear someone using "statistics", ask yourself about the types of people asked, the question/s asked, etc.
