Did you know that three out of five listeners today will contact us with feedback on our programmes? Actually that’s a lie, although we really would love to hear more from our listeners! The real truth lies in the attention-grabbing quality of statistics. Quoting statistics makes you sound more credible, like you’ve done your research. But the actual field of statistics is much more than bandying numbers around; the data collection and analysis results in complex models that are used in determining how the world around us works. We speak to Dato Sri Uzir Mahidin, Chief Statistician Malaysia about the relevance of statistics in our daily lives.
