Evaluating Statistical Information

Not all statistics are created equal.  When looking at statistics, keep these criteria in mind.

Who collected the data?
Is the coverage complete?
Do the statistics show a bias?
Are the statistics timely?
Has the data been repackaged?
Is the data from a primary source?
