11.1 Factors Influencing Data Collection

When I first read the article, I noticed that I never really paid attention to statistics, and I didn’t really care about it. It talked about students choosing which shirt they liked the most.

After learning about influencing factors, I now think that they are important and that they aren’t just useless. And there are a lot of things that could influence what your answer could be.

In the future, when reading and interpreting survey data I will pay more attention to them, and I will care a lot more about what I read and do. I will examine and try to interpret what they want to say and be careful.
