 Improvising and approximation methods and equipment will not suffice for statistical communication. It necessitates a combination of statistical methods, cognitive science, and communication understanding and skill. When it comes to statistics, a prevalent misperception is that "correlation does not imply causation." This indicates that simply because two variables are connected does not always imply that one causes the other to happen. It would be wrong to conclude that more ice cream consumption causes more drowning deaths or vice versa. While addressing two variables that may be connected, a speaker should always ensure that they are giving factual information when utilizing statistics in public speaking. Statistics may be utilized to persuade in a variety of arguments and public speaking situations; the key is to comprehend and interpret the statistics provided, then mold that interpretation into a persuasive statement. The study of data collection, analysis, interpretation, presentation, and organization is known as statistics. Because data represents truths, including numbers in your persuasive speech can help to give your argument more context and believability. When you use data, your audience is significantly more inclined to believe you. However, statistics might be difficult to comprehend on their own. As a consequence, consider utilizing visual aids like tables, graphs, and maps to help your audience understand data. These graphics are frequently simpler to comprehend than raw facts.
