Lies, damned lies and statistics
Published: Saturday 2003-11-01.
Today I received a letter from Statistics Norway where they wanted me (yeah, me — “We cannot replace you with anyone else”) to answer a survey about health in vulnerable professions. Apparently, I am classified as a “IT consultant” in their register, which at least is partly right, and that group is one of the groups which is selected to answer the survey (1000 IT consultants from a total of 8000 participants).
Some questions were easy to answer, but there was one I especially got stuck at. What do you answer this?
“Do you feel that you have a positive influence on other people’s life through what you do in your work?’
At least it is nice to be allowed to participate, and if I send in my answers I can win a gift certificate!
