They all have to face the simple problem that we are looking at soft data. No matter how sophisticated are the techniques we use, statistics cannot remove this feature. Nor can it remove the fact that the data from surveys is ordinal in nature. This data must be handled with statistics appropriate to such data. Indeed, given the nature of the data and its softness, the less statistics used the better. We are in danger in deluding ourselves that sophisticated techniques can give us numbers with spurious accuracy.
