Welcome to Understanding Uncertainty

Welcome to the site that tries to make sense of chance, risk, luck, uncertainty and probability. Mathematics won't tell us what to do, but we think that understanding the numbers can help us deal with our own uncertainty and allow us to look critically at stories in the media.


Sex by Numbers, by David Spiegelhalter, is now available for purchase!

Details of reviews, interviews, (and errors) are all featured here.
