#5 Alaska Paul,
I was taught in my very first Statistics course some 44 years ago that there are 3 classifications of Statistics:
1) Lies, damn lies and statistics
2) Figures don't lie, liars figure
3) Garbage in, garbage out.
Keep that trinity in mind and always demand to see the data and the alogrithms used to manipulate it.
