We don’t question the numbers. We draw most of our conclusions from the raw data and when a model is employed that is highlighted in the commentary. I was once asked how could I be sure this was “good CDC data” so I spent a couple of hours downloading the data for “Total deaths from All Causes” into MS Excel. I was able to reproduce the graphs exactly.
