or, Why I Hate Social Science. Examples of “studies” that actually just collect a whole lot of anecdotes and pretend they are statistics. Admittedly, historians also lean on anecdotes, but we don’t lie about it.
Anyhow, I think it’s time to retire that cliche, because clearly, the plural of anecdote IS data.
[sorry, the studies are old. I wrote this months ago and never posted it]
