social science number
Jump to user comments
(IBM) A statistic that is content-free, or nearly so. A
measure derived via methods of questionable validity from data
of a dubious and vague nature. Predictively, having a social
science number in hand is seldom much better than nothing, and
can be considerably worse. Management loves them.
