Once again, we don’t want to bore you with statistics; but, if you listen to media outlets, there is a large proportion of the rural area veteran population underserved based on somebody taking underserved statistics. Now, I found several definitions of statistics, but the one that I feel applies to this particular conversation is this one:
“Statistics is the practice or science of collecting and analyzing numerical data in large quantities, especially for the purpose of inferring proportions in a whole from those in a representative sample.”
What? Could you put that in veteran language please? In other words, the four bold underlined words mean some of us didn’t get counted. Yes, you read it right, some of us didn’t get counted.
To Veterans and their families—I ask you to contact VConnections and learn how to be counted and learn why the statistical data is necessary.
