those numbers show louisiana with a higher illiteracy rate, which prove your fudged numbers patently false. you tried to display the raw numbers rather than the numbers divided against total population to obtain a percentage.

Ok this is how math works, my original statement was that there are more illiterate people in NC. Now that you realize that was true, you're trying to say the percentage is more important. Nice of you to finally catch up to my original correct and factual post. As I posted in the third post, there is a 2%.difference between the two states and therefore the two statements are true : NC has a slightly lower PERCENTAGE, but with almost double the population, the number of actual illiterate people in state are almost doubled in NC compared to Louisiana.

All you had to do was click on the link after first post and you would have realized your mistake earlier.

lol your back pedaling is laughable. you were clearly trying to paint north carolina as a more illiterate state, or there would have been no point to you even posting that stat. you are fooling nobody.

According to the govt, there are approximately 878,974 illiterate people in N. Carolina as opposed to 530,215 in Louisiana. So it seems you have a much better chance of finding linguistic ineptitude all around you at home.

There is my original post at top, a clear fact that now that you have accepted after verifying the factual info. Your new spin is I am back peddling because it's about the one factual sentence I typed but an inference I was trying to convey? Wow, you must be used to arguing with dumb people if you think anyone will by this new spin move.

Bottom line, I still stand behind the my original one sentence post. Since you claim I'm back peddling, what is false about my original statement, There are more illiterate people in North Carolina compared to LA by a large amount.

Your original statement isn't correct, since the percentage is higher in LA. You have a better chance of finding someone who's illiterate in LA compared to NC. The numbers from your post might be correct, but your own statement is false.

Try again.

Actually, let me school you a little, you are claiming the tiny 2% difference means easier to find one in LA, but that is wrong because you're not setting it up correctly by considering population density.

LA is 52,600 square miles and has 16% rate statewide equalling 530,000 people
NC is 53,800 square miles and has 14% rate statewide equaling 878,974 people


So in basically the same amount of space +/- 53k square miles, one place has 530k and the other has 880k. Pretty easy to figure out it will be easier to find them in the place that has more of them.


That comes out to 10 illiterate people every square mile in LA and 16 illiterate people every square mile in NC.



BOOM!

Congratulations on your exhaustively mastered proof that statistics can be twisted to make one thing look like another when the rest if the world sees the obvious truth
