We have now discovered that Surrey County Council’s library study was wrong by over 42 million points in just one library – but their auditors describe the errors as “statistically insignificant”.
Other errors include a 1 million error in Ashford library’s score, Virginia Water’s library score has doubled, Molesey’s score has increased four times, 50% of the property costs are wrong and the error rate with their sampling tests is over 30% – but the auditors feel that a conclusion of “Some Improvement Needed” is justifiable.
We already know that the savings from the 10 threatened libraries are insignificant (0.01% of their budget) and their “Big Society” excuse was concocted. Now we have clear proof that the library study results are simply nonsense – and the auditors tried to cover up the massive errors they found.
It should be noted that the auditors only tested 10% of the study – most of the study has never been checked, yet we already have ludicrously high errors.
