Analysis / Bias
In review, Significant Magazine primarily covers statistics and statistical theory. They break the website into the following categories: Business, Culture, Politics, Science, and Sports. For example, under the politics category they often report on Polling Data statistics such as this: Forecast error: Are polls getting worse at predicting elections?. This detailed report is properly sourced and in-depth. Under the politics tab they also tend to demonstrate bias against Donald Trump, as can be seen, be here: Where is Donald Trump’s statistician?. This article however is sourced thoroughly and accurately.
