BART's misuse of statistics
So BART has published the results of the seat lab survey. Survey Are they really going to get away with their criminal misuse of statistics? It's clear that planners had pre-ordained Option B to be the winner. It's all too transparent that BART anticipated that most riders wouldn't, and so diluted the more popular option (front/back facing seats) into two sub-cases (options A and C) so they could then claim that option B was most popular. This is clear if one looks at the survey tabulations and counts the number of people who rated A and C excellent or good vs the number who rated B excellent or good. I wonder if someone will take them to task. Do they take their riders as fools?
