Statistics alone are very hard to derive meaning from without full context of how the statistics were determined. Without full context it is very easy to apply statistics wrongly, even if it might seem intuitively correct. As well, most people are simply happy to use statistics to determine that they are correct, rather than use statistics to determine what is correct.

In addition to this most people are also bad at general mathematics, economics, business, and politics.
