Statistics are often used to determine the present and illustrate trends to predict the future.
Consider the graph produced by the Office for National Statistics labelled, "Religion in England and Wales 2001 to 2021". Here the trends are visibly represented and future numbers can be projected.
From the graph it looks like in the next 10 years those having No Religion, graph line rising, will outnumber those who are Christian, graph line falling. Interesting, but so what? If you have no religious affiliation you probably don't care but perhaps the Archbishop of Canterbury does.
I'm not into racism and will not tolerate it on this site. Quoting selective statistics can reflect underlying philosophies and provoke sectors of society towards unacceptable actions. For example, 53.8% of Londoners identified as white in 2021 compared to 59.8% in 2011. So, a fall of 6%. So what? I draw no conclusions and offer no speculations. What is done with this type of statistic can define your ideologies and behaviour.
I hope that when the BBC writes a report based on statistics it is well-balanced and impartial. As a news medium, the BBC should relay the facts. It should not be selective or appear to have an underlying disruptive agenda to fill society with discontent and controversy.
