Nate Silver’s Statistical Standards:

- Statistics aren’t just numbers
- Data requires context
- Correlation is not causation
- The average is still the most useful statistical tool ever invented
- Human intuition can often cause errors when it comes to making statistical judgments and inferences
- A probabilistic forecast expresses uncertainty instead of trying to conceal it
- Know thy priors
- The word “complex” isn’t always a compliment
- Insiderism is the enemy of scientific objectivity
- Making predictions improves accountability
