What is in the Numbers?
This podcast is designed to take statistics that are reported in the news or found online and provide some insight to the numbers. The goal of the podcast is to help people thinking critically about statistics and what the numbers truly mean. Too often people are misguided by numbers, statistics, and graphics. Some times this is intentional and other times it is not. This podcast will help to connect current events to math and provide listeners with a more critical view of the numbers they hear each day.
The first episode comes from recent data reported from Gallup about Millennial spending habits. The goal of the podcast is to provide insight into the statistics that are presented. Are millennials irresponsible with their money and spending? Is the spending true of the millennials generation or the phase of life that millennials are currently in? Are millennials making an effort to save money? These are some of the questions that rise from the data and this first episode I believe provides different insights to how people will look at the data that is presented.
