Reflections from a Swede in Norway.

Here you will find my small graffiti board where I write about things I come to think about.

In my blog, I write about the general unfairness of life, about spam mail, vintage computers, board games, Norwegians, current and not-so-current affairs, technology and whatever else occurs to me — in other words, a glorious mess. All opinion expressed here are of course my own, and all similarities with any living people is of course intentional.

More lies, damned lies and statistics

Published: Sunday 2005-10-16.

Two years ago I received a letter from Statistics Norway about a survey about health in vulnerable professions. Now I have received a follow-up letter, since I was so nice as to answer it back two years ago. I don’t quite remember what the questions were last night, but they seem to be more or less the same, and my favourite question from last time is still there:

“Do you feel that you have a positive influence on other people’s life through what you do in your work?’

They are still trying to tempt me with a gift certificate if I send them my answers. I didn’t win anything last time, but since I have been lucky lately, perhaps this time?
