    The problem is that most people have not studied statistics and do not understand the underlying problems of trying to find correlations where there may not be any.  This is one reason I particularly like the multiple regression statistic, provided you can identify all the relevant variables to plug in. On the other hand, only a person well trained in advanced statistics can really understand the data set that comes out the other end.
