Stats Again

Recommended Posts

It seems to me from just two examples that one can sway the figures rather well for HPI by over weighting the increases in certain areas and making them effect the data.

It's easy really, and akin to proportional representation in politics. 1 vote does not equal it's relative value.

So from this idea and this info we have Rutlands http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/shared/spl/hi/in_d...ml/county77.stm seemingly over reprenting the East Midlands - just look at the house sales for the areas. EDIT and the link for the area http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/shared/spl/hi/in_d...tml/region6.stm

It's skewing figures badly by giving it a section on it's own.

And for me The City of Peterborough is the same in the East Anglia figures - http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/shared/spl/hi/in_d...tml/region7.stm .

Could you guys help me here and do a little for your area and see if the same is true. If so does anyone care to explain why the stats are very disproportionate to reality.
