Misleading Numbers

The “Number Watch” Web site focuses on “misleading” numbers that appear in the media and are often used to promote specific causes, as compiled by retired engineering professor John Brignell of the University of Southampton. Brignell also offers online resources on statistics and statistics education. The FAQ section includes answers to such questions as “Is there such a thing as average global temperature?” and “What is the Normal Distribution and what is so normal about it?”
