By crunchypeanutbutter 19 August 2008 2

‘Lies, Damn Lies and Statistics’ is a familiar catch phrase but how did this mathematical science develop such a sinister reputation?

Experience the power of statistics in this entertaining and interactive presentation of a serious subject from Australia’s largest collector of data – the Australian Bureau of Statistics.

Discover the impact of some famous (or infamous?) uses of statistics and how they can affect your life. You will never look at percentages in quite the same way again.

[ED – So we can just rock up to the Belconnen building and check out a display?]

Part of the Australian Science Festival at the National Convention Centre.

20 August, 5.30pm, Nicholls Theatre, National Convention Centre, Admission Free.
