Data --- More

It is said --- accurately enough --- that data is just the plural of anecdote.

There has been an explosion of available data around the world. It helps us function.

Alas, it is true that "figures never lie, but liars figure."

The pioneers who spread the word were a few unsung heroes at the US Census Bureau in the 1930s.

Salute them.
