One objective of this course is learning how to correctly interpret statistical measures. This includes learning how to identify intentionally misleading statistics. For this week’s activity, create your own example of a misleading statistic. Explain the context of the data, the source of the data, the sampling method that you used (or would use) to collect the data, and the (misleading) conclusions that would be drawn from your example. Be specific in explaining how the statistic is misleading.
Use a minimum of 2 sources. APA format is required including proper in text citations and a list of references. NOTE: Sources used in answering the Topic Question should come from peer-reviewed journals. This means no tweets, blogs, wikis, CNN.com, etc. should be used as resources.
