Statistical analysis is used everywhere on a daily basis, from billion dollar advertising campaigns to country population studies to the CDC preventing epidemics to Ford determining how many cars they will sell next year, ad infinitum. How do insurers calculate the cost of life insurance policies? If actuarial results are wrong, insurance companies go bankrupt. Manufacturers who ignore statistical data from their customers vis a vis inventory levels do not stay in business very long. The world today is literally built on statistical analysis.But fail to see a good reason to study something with such a weak foundation.
KB, because you are ignorant of a process does not automatically mean that process has no value because you say so. At least you have an opinion, so now fire up the neurons and study something you do not currently appreciate. It might open your eyes.
