What percentage of statistics have no practical use for society?
The report was very in depth, they collected over 800,000 statistics through the 6 years to end end of 2009, and each was carefully examined by an international consortium of 1000 researchers and scientists over a further 2 year period to analyse whether or not they are actually useful for people to know, and also how much time researches waste on these apparently useless results coming from 77.6% of statistics.
What do you think about this apparent danger, should we be worried? Or does it not matter? Apparently allot of those statistics were found to have been the result of often years of data collection and thousands of subjects. Seems like a bit of a waste of people's resources.
