HOW TO LIE WITH STATISTICS

HOW TO LIE WITH STATISTICS

 

In Clifton’s 2006 study (that covers media-reported bites from 1982 – November 13, 2006), Clifton’s numbers suggest that there were 2,209 ”attacks doing bodily harm” and 1,323 ”maimings”.
In Clifton’s 2009 Study (which covers bites from 1982-through the end of 2009), Clifton reports 2,694 ”attacks doing bodily harm” and 1,493 ”Maimings”.
So from 2006 to 2009, Clifton reports 485 ”attacks doing bodily harm” and 170 ”maimings”
However, Clifton takes it one step further. He also pulls out the total number of attacks by ”pit bulls, Rottweilers, Presa Canarios and their mixes”.
In 2006, Clifton shows this number to be 1,638 ”attacks” and 893 ”maimings”.  In 2009, he shows 2,147 ”attacks” and 1108 ”maimings”.

So in the time frame, he shows 509 attacks doing bodily harm by his selected groups of breeds and 215 maimings. So in the past 3 years, Clifton’s ”report” shows that pit bulls, rottweilers and presa canarios were responsible for MORE  attacks and maimings than he shows even happening — which is obviously impossible
