Not all polls are the same, in fact there are a huge number of things that can affect the quality of the results. So how can you tell if a survey you read about in the newspaper or see on TV is actually accurate or, at worst, effectively just making things up?
Using real-life examples, ranging from the familiar to the outright bizarre, this talk will show you how to tell from good from the bad and the ugly.
Lots of fun. Prizes to be won.
This event is free to attend and is open to the public. Seats may be limited, so please arrive early to avoid disappointment.
