Probably. Low death counts make better PR than high ones.

True, however it reminds us not to take any figures for granted.

True, there are three kinds of lies they say: lies, damn lies, and statistics. But like I said when you have similar statistics from two different groups, with differing political views, and those statistics agree, the truth is probably somewhere near those numbers. It is hard to tell absolutely though.
What makes statistics even more confusing for people is that most don't understand the difference between the mean, the median, and the mode. Basic mathematical and science education is highly lacking in this country, and it makes it increasing difficult for them to understand all of the studies they are bombarded with.
