Isn't it doughnut time for you fatty?


sigh

if there are 878,000 illiterate people in north carolina out of a population of 9.5 million, that's an illiteracy rate of ~9%

if there are 530,000 illiterate people in louisiana out of a population of 4.5 million, that's an illiteracy rate of ~12%



The funny thing about it is that you don't take the result of a different population size and plug that result for a different population. NC has 14% and LA had 16%, so use those numbers if you insist on those new population figures. Also. Go to the site I gave you which is the official govt site on illiteracy numbers and you will see the population figures as of last testing was 6.6 mil and 3.5 mil population sizes.

no matter what you say about it, you are more likely to run into an illiterate person in LA than NC. trying to pretend you were anything other than concretely wrong about it utterly discredits anything else you say ever

Let see, on one side we have Phil's opinion, on the other side I have hard numbers directly from the govt site on illiteracy, with a link to that site to verify that the numbers I gave where exact numbers calculated out!


I dunno, I kinda leaning towards the concrete verifiable numbers direct from govt, but hey, maybe it's just us dumb Saints fans thing to trust an actual verified number over the feeling and guess of a random rival fan, we're silly like that.

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.
