VICTORIAN WHEAT OUTLOOK. THE ILLUSIONS OF "AVERAGES." [Newspaper Article] — Leader — 10 January 1914

vICTORIAN WHEAT 'OUTLOOK,. THE ILLUSIONS OF "AVERAGES.'": That the populations of the world mtist each day bc' given th'eir daily bread is probably' the main reason why so many writers throughout the world 1keep on pre senting,. as ever new, the old (uestion as to how the annual yield of wvheat may be increased. It seems to be generally be lieved that the land is not now producing as much wheat as it formerly did. and. further, :that' this assumed decadence is from year to year steadily goig on. An underlying cause of misapprehension in all the epeculations on this subject is to be found in the mixing up of the statistical "averages" witsh- the actual yields. In the same way that the quality of wheat is sought to be hixed as a standard of mixing samples from all parts of the country, 'good and bad together, and calling this the "'fair average qualitvy," so also the yields from all parts,. high and low, are mixed together, and 'a result obtained which is called the general average yi...

It is the usual thing for New South Wales to 'lead off with a pre-estimate of the wheat harvest calculated to exceed all other States, and equally usual for such estimate to Ibe discredited.
