1. Explain what role you think statistics have in our society.
I think that statistics have a huge role in our society because it’s a way to get the opinion of people for a subject that needs discussion without too much thought and effort. It can also be a way to the government or a organization to easily get info from some of the population if needed.
2. Explain anything new that you have learned about the importance of statistics in our society.
We need to watch and / or look for the way questions are worded and who is answering the questions. We also need to look out for some of the influencing factors in the survey questions. But I also learned statistics can be good representations of what is important and what people want.
3. Describe some problems with statics.
A problem that is very common with statistics are biases. This can come in all shapes and sizes. People that want their opinions to be superior, people who don’t want to participate in the surveys, etc. Or having one type of population take a survey. For example: Have trump supporters take a survey on how he is as president.
