Statistics are a valuable aspect of scientific research. This paper demonstrates many different ways in which scientific data is used in everyday life. By the same token, statistics may also be abused to reach a false conclusion, and this is also illustrated through several cases.

From the Paper:

"Just as statistics help in prosecution and defense of cases, they may also be abused when different experts in the same field offer different evidence and conclusions from examining the same data. Another way in which statistics may be abused is through corruption; in this case the police investigators may take DNA sample from a suspect and introduce it to a crime scene."
