Sampling, surveys, and polls are three of the ways in which data is gathered. The results are then presented as information. How can you be fooled by data? Why/How does the data collected in polls and studies lead us to incorrect conclusions? What impacts do you think polls have or have had on you? Do you pay attention to polls? Do you think national polls impact peoples’ views on a topic?
