    Welcome to Event #1 in the Scientistt Spring Event Series 2021! The Misuse of Science & Statistics

    How and why are numbers so easily manipulated? Recent events have proved that casual observers can be tricked in to believing something over than what the data shows. As scientists, what is our responsibility when it comes to communicating data?
