“1. Will the source of the data make money on it?

2. Is the raw data unavailable?

3. Does it warp normal definitions?

4. Were respondents not selected at random?

5. Did the survey use leading questions?

6. Do the results calculate an average?

7. Were respondents self-selected?

8. Does it assume causality?

9. Does it lack independently confirmation?”
