This number was clearly made up on the spot. Does anyone know of any research that cites the true percentage of fake statistics?
I saw a paper in AJS (American Journal of Statistics) a few years ago that just focused on large-city newspapers, and they estimated that it was between 40 and 55 percent, but as I recall their margin of error was something like 12 percent. They also rated the papers for their factualness, and as I recall, The New York Times was by far the most accurate, and I hope I'm remembering this correctly, but I think the Sacramento Bee was at the bottom.
There had also been some work in this area by the excellent, but now defunct, media-watchdog magazine Brill's Content, but I don't recall any specifics.
Unfortunately, that's the only research I recall that was based on actual data rather than just someone's guess / opinion.
it was just a mis-typing as far as i believe - at that current time it was 43.7%, not 47.3%.
however, statistics are continually happening and being made up, so the actual percentage will vary massively over any given period of time
But you must take into consideration that half of the people on Earth make up 50% of the population...and that research causes cancer in rats.
