Fragment d’aujourd’hui raconté en statistique

March 3, 2012 § Leave a comment

A routine Saturday afternoon metro journey of six stops in each direction, a mid-journey glance around the carriage. Outbound:  16 people (9 women, 5 men, 2 children), 1 pushchair, 1 bike (folding but unfolded), 2 readers, 2 phone-users, 1 music-listener, 4 hat n headscarf-wearers, 2 spectacle-wearers.  Return: 16 people again (8 men, 7 women, 1 child), 1 pushchair, no bikes, 2 readers, 2 phone-users, 1 music-listener, 1 hat n headscarf-wearer, 1 spectacle-wearer.  3 stations with lifts including start and end points of this journey (representing 14% of the metro-stations with lift-acess). I’m a spectacle-wearing, pushchair-toting women with a child wearing a hat and an avid user of the too sparse lifts in the metro system.  But statistically significant?: frankly I doubt it!
