American statistics Thu, Mar 31, 2022
Whenever I hear a statistic about America or Americans, it's pretty much never true.  America isn't really a country, it's actually a shell company containing 50 smaller countries, each with its own economy, geography, and culture.  You can't say "America is mostly [X]" or "Americans are largely [Y]" because it's probably not true for the vast majority of the country, but because of how statistics work, it's sort of true in theory. 

I guess this sort of applies to any large heterogeneous group, and it's especially noticeable for the people who fall outside the norms of whatever statistic you're looking at. #math
