Video 24: Statistics is About People, Even if You Can’t See the Tears.
You will find Video 24: Statistics is About People, Even if You Can’t See the Tears by navigating to the MSL Tools for Success link under Course Home.
The video makes the point that though nobody wants to think that they are a statistic, acting as if you are a statistic can help you make better decisions. That said, statisticians should never forget that the numbers they analyze correspond to real people, who have friends, relatives, and stories to tell.
Respond to one of the following questions in your initial post:
- Why do you think people often feel that “the statistics don’t apply to me”?
- The reason why so many of us now live long, healthy lives is due to statistical analysis of health data. What other statistical analyses have had a large impact on how we live our lives?
- Why do you think statistics often has a bad name?
Your initial post should be 150 to 250 words in length. Respond to at least two of your classmates’ posts by Day 7 in at least one paragraph.
Students are expected to participate by actively engaging in weekly discussion forums. Please note that completing work in MyStatLab does not count as attendance.
