BBC Radio 4: More or Less: Behind the Stats

From BBC Radio 4 comes More or Less - a broadcast that aims to offer a "statistical guide to the world and everything else." The show is hosted by Tim Harford and released twice a week. In each episode, Harford discusses the statistics quoted in recent news stories and new research. For example, one recent episode investigates a recent claim from Russia's health ministry that alcohol consumption in the country has declined by 80% in the past five years. Another recent episode considers various ways to calculate national success at the Winter Olympics. Each episode of "More or Less" is approximately 11 minutes in length. Visitors can access all current and past episodes on this website.
