Here’s an interesting (though oddly titled) post by Jon Richman: Lies, Damn Lies and Pharma Social Media Statistics.
It is interesting because it beautifully un-packs misreporting on a topic of great interest to e-patients. It is oddly titled because while the pharmaceutical industry is part of his beat, the errors in reporting on surveys he describes are common across the board.
Caveat emptor – and thanks, Jon, for so clearly articulating the caveat.
