Time to move this discussion to the innumeracy thread. (Including me, for falling for it. . .)
Carol Marler, "Just My Opinion"

Pluto is no longer a planet and I am no longer an actuary. Please take my opinions as non-actuarial.

My latest favorite quotes, updated Feb 15, 2018. Hmmm. It's been quite a while.

I should keep these four permanently.

Er, it's not the remainder we're talking about if you look at what the article claims. If x is the year when they thought Level 5 would be available, the article reports...

75% said x≥2030
40% said x>2030

The second answer is a subset of the first, with the only difference being x=2030, for 75%-40%=35%.

I'm guessing that the actual response of the 40% was something like "much later than 2030," but the article doesn't say it that way. Innumeracy indeed.
