The Power of Statistics in the Wrong Hands

No numerical statistics this week...rather a statistical statement that needs to be explored or addressed. In one of her wiser moments, Mary Anne Tebedo, former State Senator in Colorado (1989-2002), once orated in front of the Colorado assembly: "Statistics show that teen pregnancy drops off significantly after age 25."

Can you explain why this amazing trend seems true?

Perhaps this should have be placed on the humor page!
