Numbers and Trust

Do you trust the numbers published by your authorities ?

Who do you think has the exact idea of the current situation in India, so that we can say we have eradicated the pandemic? If we don’t trust the numbers published, how do we know if it’s gone or not?

Management teaches you to talk numbers and justify your decisions, but one should also questions how the numbers were generated(fabricated) . Every number tells a story and there will always be a story behind how the number itself is a generated in first place, the assumptions, the exclusions, the outliers, the normalizations and many more.

Sometimes numbers are just numbers, in situations like this, each number is a person and there is a real life behind that number.

that’s the banter for today
