Statistics: Evaluating Statistics

This guide contains resources and guidance to help students find statistics

Evaluating statistics


 It is important that you evaluate the statistics you find to make sure that they are high quality. Important things to think about are:

  • Where did the statistics come from?
  • Who published them?
  • When were the statistics published?

The C.R.A.P test is a useful tool for evaluating statistics that you find.
