The original Josiah Stamp quotation:

"The government are very keen on amassing statistics--they collect them, add them, raise them to the n'th power, take the cube root, and prepare wonderful diagrams. But what you must never forget is that every one of those figures comes in the first place from the chowty dar [village watchman] who just puts down what he damn pleases."

Sir Josiah Stamp, "Some Economic Factors in Modern Life" London, P.S. King & Son, Ltd, Orchard House, Westminster, 1929. Ch. VIII Human Nature in Statistics
