The Statistics Song

Song copyright Science Court, Inc.

Numbers and surveys, they can tell us a lot,
When they're honest and fair...but sometimes they're not.
Check the size of a sample and they way it was picked,
Do the questions seem fair? Did the people seem tricked?

Chorus: Every day with more statistics showing up in the news you
Will see pretty graphs and fancy charts to amuse you.
But how was all the information found and then collected?
Look out for fancy numbers that are unconnected.
