So even if the questions aren’t skewed,
and even when results are honestly
reported, the conclusions must be viewed
as only pertinent to massive groups.
Statistics just apply to magnitude –
when stuck on individuals, they fade.
But managed health care seems to go for crude –
applying big statistics onto me
is not the way good remedy’s pursued.
