Abstract

More than once the British Food Journal has had occasion to deplore the inclusion, in official reports to local authorities, of elaborate statistical tables giving the impression that bare figures relating to the examination of samples of food and drugs are of more value than is in fact the case. Figures by themselves, said an experienced teacher of arithmetic, have no meaning. It is highly gratifying now to find that Mr. A. N. Leather, B.Sc., F.R.I.C., Public Analyst for the City of Manchester, has found time to discuss the problem of summarising laboratory results in such a manner as to convey a far more enlightening meaning than is to be derived from bare statistics. Space does not permit the inclusion of the whole of Mr. Leather's comments, but the gist of his argumentwhich we find most convincingis here recorded.
