We attempt to show that four factors documented by psychological research can help explain the furor that followed the release of the task force’s report. These factors are the persuasive power of anecdotal (as opposed to statistical) evidence, the influence of personal experience, the improper evaluation of data, and the influence of low base rates on the efficacy of screening tests. We suggest that augmenting statistics with facts boxes or pictographs might help such committees communicate more effectively with the public and with the U.S. Congress.</dcterms:abstract> <dcterms:issued>2012-06</dcterms:issued> <dcterms:hasPart rdf:resource=""/> <dcterms:isPartOf rdf:resource=""/> <dc:contributor>Arkes, Hal R.</dc:contributor> <dcterms:bibliographicCitation>Psychological Science ; 23 (2012), 6. - S. 547-553</dcterms:bibliographicCitation> <dcterms:available rdf:datatype="">2014-05-26T08:50:50Z</dcterms:available> <dspace:hasBitstream rdf:resource=""/> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
