In this wide-ranging study, Nicholas Eberstadt demonstrates that some of the most basic of today's domestic and foreign policies have been buttressed or justified by what turns out to be misanalysis or misuse of available facts and figures. The Tyranny of Numbers not only warns about the ways the statistics are being misused in government policy in the United States and abroad, but also explains how this process can end up injuring vulnerable groups or distorting the workings of the democratic system.
Nicholas Eberstadt is the Harry Wendt Scholar in Political Economy at AEI.
