The Royal Statistical Society, based in London, has declared its “Statistic of the Year.” Here’s RSS CEO Hetan Shah to tell everyone about it.
Americans 34 times more likely to be killed by lawnmowers than foreign-born jihadis. Thanks to @KimKardashian for helping us @RoyalStatSoc to find our #International #StatoftheYear https://t.co/kS9XrGymLG

The Sun reports that this is the Royal Statistical Society’s inaugural International Statistic of the Year. We’re thinking the Society can take next year off.

I've never seen a video of a lawnmower screaming "Death to America!", And then beheading a human. How does that affect your stats?

I have never heard of anyone getting killed by a lawnmower… but I do miss my friends who were killed on 911.
