Answer

distrust all statistics because they convey a false impression of certainty and are typically wildly inaccurate.

integrate statistics with "real-life" issues, such as day care, in order to interpret them.

trust only those statistics that are presented in reputable newspapers and journals.

ask how the statistic was calculated and what data the statistic is based upon.
