I found these facts during a communications class and thought some of you might enjoy it.

On Accuracy.

If 99.9% is acceptable, then…
22,000 checks will be deducted from the wrong bank accounts in the next 60 minutes
12 babies will be given to the wrong parents each day
2,488,200 books will be shipped in the next 12 months with the wrong cover
18,322 pieces of mail will be mishandled in the next hour
107 incorrect medical procedures will be performed by the end of the day today
315 entries in Webster’s Dictionary of the English language will turn out to be mis-spelled
1,314 phone calls will be misplaced by telecom services every minute

These numbers are based on 1992 or older data!
