    For some reason, I think this should be a really good video response:

    I know it's long, but it's also pretty good.

    And if you don't want a video reply but want to play around with those statistics, Google and Gapminder have this fabulous tool at <uri:http://tools.google.com/gapminder/>

    Interesting video. It's interesting how people can make data speak.

    Just remember, over 70% of statistics are made up on the spot...

    But this is statistics that are actually pretty well controlled, and mostly falling within that "30%" that are NOT made up on the spot... Tax, citizenship and birth records are for instance pretty accurate for most countries. That's not to say they are fully reliable for all countries, however.

    When I was back in school I took a whole maths module on using perfectly valid statistics to "prove" pretty much anything.
