Behind the Numbers – Nigel Hawkes

This is brilliant. You should watch it.

Added note: I was just thinking of my endorsement up there, and realizing everyone probably clicks the link expecting a TED style video that will wrap everything up for you in a nice metaphor wrapped in a story of humanity and triumph.

Nope, it’s just an old dude talking about how many problems with stats in the media are so simple that they don’t even even require stats to fix.

I think sometimes TED has ruined us.
