The Evaluator and Statistics

I had to calculate Cohen's d, Eta Squared and r today, but thought that would be too dreary a topic for a Friday blog post.

Instead, I found some statistics quotes here

Some of my favourites:
Torture numbers, and they'll confess to anything. ~Gregg Easterbrook

He uses statistics as a drunken man uses lampposts - for support rather than for illumination. ~Andrew Lang

Statistics can be made to prove anything - even the truth. ~Author Unknown
