‘The Perils of Perception’ will take place on Tuesday 9th July at 5.30pm and according to the Society ‘the lecture will this time examine how people’s understanding of the state of society is affected by personal experience rather than more objective evidence. It will also cover issues where public perceptions are out of step with the data – such as levels of crime, proportion of government money spent on overseas aid and benefit levels’ (RSS News, 5th June 2013).

The meeting will be chaired this time by Executive Director of the Royal Statistical Society, Hetan Shah. Bobby Duffy, Managing Director of Ipsos Mori will once again speak and he will this time be joined by Office for Budget Responsibility chair Robert Chote, BBC home editor Mark Easton, Jill Rutter of the Institute for Government and Professor Ken Young, programme director for Public Policy at King’s College London.
