Accident Prone … Is it Real?
Accident Prone Locations
Here’s an interesting article from The Telegraph (a UK newspaper):
“Uk’s most accident-prone place“
It proposes that some places in the UK are more accident-prone than others. What do you think? Are some locations more accident-prone? Or is this an example of interpreting the statistics as you want to see them?
All Depends on How You Look at It
I noticed that the “rates” they used were per 100,000 or 10,000 people. But is this the appropriate number? Shouldn’t the denominator be per the risks encountered?
For example, the driving statistics should be per mile driven. Working at height should be per hour working at height.
How Do You Interpret Statistics?
How do you interpret (or misinterpret) your statistics?
Seeing if you can find real trends means understanding how statistics can help uncover problems and how they can be misinterpreted. And most of what we see are misinterpreted statistics.
We call correctly interpreting statistics “trending.” And we have proven, advanced methods that are easy to understand and make trending meaningful.
