This learning video continues the theme of an early BLOSSOMS lesson, Flaws of Averages, using new examples -- including how all the children from Lake Wobegon can be above average, as well as the Friendship Paradox. As mentioned in the original module, averages are often worthwhile representations of a set of data by a single descriptive number. The objective of this lesson, once again, is to simply point out a few pitfalls that could arise if one is not attentive to details when calculating and interpreting averages.
