Behind the Numbers

Our monthly probings of the numbers making headlines are continuing on Zoom, inevitably dominated by the pandemic: I recently found that those photos and newsreels of over-70s having their "jabs" all over the country tell only half of the story: up to 7th February, under-70s had received 40 per cent of vaccinations, a parallel massive effort mainly to protect health and care workers.

But it's not all Covid: we have also probed the headlines "English and Scottish get drunk most often" (probably nonsense) and "Electricity generation from renewables overtook fossil fuels in the UK for the first time in 2020" (almost certainly true) and we are now looking at quality of life indicators. If you would like to dig deeper into the data behind news stories, come and join us.
