This is a totally worthless statistic. If I manufactured car and 500 of the 1000 of them sold crashed…it wouldn’t make this list. Anyone with an IQ can see that a 50% car crash rate would be the highest crash rate of any vehicle in the history of automobiles.
Thanks for bringing everyone’s attention to the obvious useless ness of the statistic!
Here is another source of statistics from the IIHS that is also somewhat useless in its own way. It’s only useful to an insurance company that doesn’t know anything about driver behavior. If you buy a Corvette and you’re 19 years old, we think you’re going to crash is how the insurance industry works. It doesn’t take in to account miles traveled, seat belt use, or driver behavior. This is why the Corvette is usually near the top of this list. Also, don’t overlook the confidence limits, which is a very wide range. The number that they give in between that range is not always better than a guess.
Notice how in this data that the 4 wheel drive versions of the same trucks have higher fatalities. I believe this has purely to do with driver behavior
Take a math class. Statistics are EXTREMELY useful. It can be abused by people who don’t know what they are doing. But statistics is heavily used by business and manufacturing. Used correctly it can be an extremely effective tool. I’ve worked on several statistical models that have accurately predicted factual results.
I flagged your post as spam, since it is a bit of a personal attack in response to something that I didn’t write, and it contributes nothing of value to the conversation. I doubt anything will happen, by it’s worth a try.
