Your Data is Lying to You

The Premise: Is your data telling you the truth?

Facts are facts, but that doesn’t mean that your data is telling you the whole story. Data experts know that biases crop up any time we look at data, and this cannot be avoided. That’s why we need to be sensitive to these biases when making judgments and when planning data collection exercises. We apply these concepts to everything from sales metrics to the COVID pandemic to government surveillance. This episode reunites our social justice panel, including Leon Adato, Josh Fidel, Karen Lopez, and Phoummala Schmitt, with moderator Stephen Foskett.
