It is stated that if people want to make informed decisions, they have to understand health statistics. It is reported that absolute risks are more informative than relative risks as relative risks create undue anxiety. The mortality rates are reliable indicators of screening and changes in five-year survival rates have no reliability because of overdiagnosis.</dcterms:abstract> <dc:language>eng</dc:language> <dc:creator>Gigerenzer, Gerd</dc:creator> <dc:contributor>Gaissmaier, Wolfgang</dc:contributor> <foaf:homepage rdf:resource="http://localhost:8080/jspui"/> <dspace:hasBitstream rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/bitstream/123456789/28031/2/Gigerenzer_280319.pdf"/> <dcterms:issued>2009</dcterms:issued> <void:sparqlEndpoint rdf:resource="http://localhost/fuseki/dspace/sparql"/> <dc:creator>Schwartz, Lisa M.</dc:creator> <dcterms:rights rdf:resource="https://rightsstatements.org/page/InC/1.0/"/> <dc:creator>Gaissmaier, Wolfgang</dc:creator> <dc:contributor>Kurz-Milcke, Elke</dc:contributor> <dcterms:isPartOf rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/rdf/resource/123456789/43"/> <dc:contributor>Gigerenzer, Gerd</dc:contributor> <dspace:isPartOfCollection rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/rdf/resource/123456789/43"/> <dcterms:bibliographicCitation>Scientific American Mind ; 20 (2009), 2. - S. 44-51</dcterms:bibliographicCitation> <bibo:uri rdf:resource="http://kops.uni-konstanz.de/handle/123456789/28031"/> <dc:contributor>Schwartz, Lisa M.</dc:contributor> <dc:contributor>Woloshin, Steven</dc:contributor> <dcterms:title>Knowing your chances</dcterms:title> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
