    Statistics from the Chinese government are no less fraudulent than the fake numbers from any other government. They all tend to show what they would like to happen, or what they want others to believe is happening (within limits of what they think the public is likely to accept), rather than what is really taking place. Things are hardly ever as good as the numbers would lead one to believe, and they are more properly looked upon as propaganda, than fact.
