BA 215 Discussion "Deceptive Statistics"


There are examples of deceptive statistics everywhere - visual data presentations (charts/graphs)—from magazines to newspaper articles. Locate a particularly outrageous chart/graph and interview people in your company about the message they interpret from this example. Ask them the purpose of the statistics/research--chart/graph, the strengths and weaknesses of the chart/graph and if are they convinced or suspicious of its findings. What would they recommend to make the results more credible (if anything). Make an audio or video clip of your interview and upload it to this cite. Be sure to include a picture of the graph in the discussion forum.
