A survey conducted by the Royal Statistical Society and King's College London, reveals that public opinion is frequently far off the mark regarding topics like crime, benefit fraud, and immigration — a.k.a, the important issues you kind of need to know about. Highlighting some of the discrepancies, we, as a nation, believe teen pregnancy rates are 25 times higher than they are; benefit fraud is 34 times higher than it is; and that 24% of the country is Muslim, when in reality it’s just 5%. Like we said: We're getting everything wrong.
