Statistically Speaking...

presents viewpoints and perspectives of the members of the NSCB Technical Staff on statistical concerns, such as correct and appropriate use of statistics in clarifying common or gross misinterpretation, misrepresentation, and erroneous reporting of statistical information, best practices in the generation and dissemination of official statistics, recent developments in statistics and other areas of interest to our stakeholders.

Specifically, Statistically Speaking seeks to assist in :

  • informing those who do not know,
  • enlightening those who may be confused, and
  • guiding those who may have been misled,


  • revealing what is not known,
  • clarifying what is vague, and
  • rectifying what is erroneous.
