" 'Round numbers,' pronounced Dr Johnson, 'are always false.' But not, of course, the precise and scientific calculations of trained statisticians, with their decimals and percentages. The computer, like the camera, cannot lie. Not without help, anyhow. Darrell Huff introduces the beginner to the niceties of samples (random or stratified random), averages (mean, median, or modal), errors (probable, standard, or unintentional), graphs, indexes and other tools of democratic persuasion."
Book in good condition.
