The brothers Björn and Sören Christensen are publishing the column "Achtung: Statistik" (engl.: "Attention: Statistic" periodically. Based on scientific argumentation it is shown, in an entertaining way, at which points in our daily life we are confrontated with statistics and which false conclusions, without awareness of statistics, we probably make.

The initiative "Unstatistik des Monats" (engl.: "Un-statistic of the month") was founded in 2012 by psychologist Gerd Gigerenzer from Berlin and the economists Thomas Bauer from Bochum and Walter Krämer from Dortmund. In this column, statistic news based on not appropiate data or misinterpretation of data, are exposed. The spectrum of false conclusions are from comical to frightening.
