ABSTRACT
This article discusses the subjectivity in scientific studies and the ways in which the person conducting a study can tamper with the methodology, producing misleading results. The article describes an example in which a Congress-ordered study followed a group of children who had been assigned to sexual education programs across the U.S. The results found by Congress and those found by social conservative groups in regard to the effectiveness of abstinence-only programs contradicted each other.
