"Things You Wouldn't Know If We Didn't Blog Intermittently."
The only problem with this graph it's making presumption that all countries have equal population. Additionally, what's missing is a correlation with how many tests were administered. For all we know the numbers doubling every three days may be only a correlation to how many tests were administered.
There is no presumption regarding population size; the graph is comparing slopes representing a rate of change. Your second point is absolutely valid.
Glad to see you back and blogging, gives me something positive to do during this mess. Stay safe up there in the great frozen north, and anyone else who's reading this, you stay safe too. Don't panic, don't hoard, we WILL get through this!
Sigh .... Data are plural. Should be dataarebeautiful subreddit. But, that's me bring pedantic. Thanks for the share and stay well!
btw, David, would you say "Data are a plural word" or "Data is a plural word" ?not trying to argue with you (pedantry is always welcome on TYWKIWDBI). it's just an interesting conundrum.
Thanks for the link. I know I am in the vast minority. Old habits die hard.
