    About This Project

    Why is fake news so popular? It is partly because people often accept any information that supports their beliefs - even if it is totally wrong.

    This project seeks to measure the motivated numeracy effect outside the United States for the first time, so we fight the rise of fake news.

    The motivated numeracy effect is a type of motivated reasoning where people refuse to acknowledge data if it doesn't support their pre-existing beliefs.

    Blast off!
