Old Anxiety Zone post….Shot in the Dark

Recommended Posts

Once upon a time there used to be a forum Anxiety Zone.  It is no longer active for whatever reason.

However, there was a stickied post fantastically written about statistics. How to read them, how to apply them, how to look at them, how to be rational with them.

Shot in the dark, but I know a lot of you on here came from there. Anybody have a copy to post or know if it is out there in the internet nether?

I was a Mod on that site and I can't even remember the topic. Figures. Owner of this site owns the AZ domain name. 

 

Here is one site that deal with stats and anxiety. No idea if this is the sort of thing you are looking for.

Thanks Cuchculan, not it 😞

The post itself listed out something like statistically u have X amount of chance being struck by lightning. Than went on to use examples of let’s say having cancer, split by age bracket, split by number of people in that age bracket in the U.S. and comparing it to the lightning statistic or shark attack etc.

Was a VERY well put together post.

I can’t be certain, but I might have been the one who posted that, but I don’t believe it was a stickie. I use statistics a lot to calm my HA, and especially on AZ I posted on that. If you’re interested, it would be easier if you DM me. I’ll be happy to give you all the ways stats can help you.

I can PM you, but if you did pen it, it would be a great standalone post and help others. A lot of people with HA use statistics, but they have nothing to compare them to or just don’t understand what they are reading.

i.e. - Some people interpret 5 yr survival rate to be at the 5yr mark you are a goner.

The 5 year survival rate means who is still alive 5 years after treatment had begun for a disease such as cancer.
