Re: "48 Percent of Black Women Have Genital Herpes" - CDC
Exactly. Statistics are crap and should never be taken seriously.
Incorrectly-applied statistics or bad experimental design, maybe, but to say they "never should be taken seriously," I don't agree with that. Confidence Intervals are utilized, and with proper usage, they can be valuable and efficient tools for analysis. It simply isn't practical to test every single individual in a given population to perform an analysis.
