Why It Matters (Previously IT Figures) 一点都不公式化

When does a number become scary? To understand that – and all the data and eyebrow-raising claims thrown at us – we have to strip. Strip down the statistics, that is. And you can count on the series Why It Matters to do just that for you. We ask the intelligent questions you’ve always wanted to ask. We look at the figures that matter in your everyday life – the cost of childcare, healthcare and retirement. We do that because statistics are not for the experts. Statistics are for you and me. And in this new season of Why It Matters, new presenter Richard Herrera and Justin Bratton will bring their energy and dynamic curiosity to all corners of the globe. Their mission? To make the stories behind the statistics accessible, relevant and uncannily timely.
