Fradulent Data

This article references the Gambler's fallacy and Benford's Law, which I thought were fascinating when I first learned of them a few years ago. The article continues with a really interesting and somewhat shocking discovery, that a polling company has been producing fraudulent data for several years.


  1. He is cautious about making any accusations because he doesn't want to get sued, but it is clear the polling company is a fraud.

  2. Yeah, that's what I thought, too.
