Statistically Significant

I’m a big fan of this story (part of a series) about shoddily-built homes in Orlando. I like it because the Orlando Sentinel and WESH-TV, with help from the University of Central Florida, have actually done a statistically significant study. It’s news based on the aggregation of data, not anecdotes, which is rarer than it ought to be.

Also, this infographic of how a house gets built is pretty cool. Except, I gotta tell you, we don’t build ‘em like that in Michigan. Cement walls? What?
