 Summary
 Who was the greatest baseball hitter of all time? How likely is it that a poll is correct? Is it smart to buy last year's highestperforming stock? These questions all involve the interpretation of statistics, and this film is an introduction to this vitally important subject in today's datadriven society. Explanations for terms such as mean, median, percentile, quartile, statistically significant, and bell curve, and scores of other statistical concepts are covered. The emphasis is on the role of statistics in daily life, giving a broad overview of how statistical tools are employed in risk assessment, college admissions, drug testing, fraud investigation, and a host of other applications
