Tim Harford and the More or Less team offer another numbers-eye view of the news.

This week:

Local government funding: why everything depends on Wokingham.

Inflation: who came up with the 1-3% target? Why? And why do we keep missing it?

Age-adjusted earnings: how much should you be earning if you're a 43-year-old man called David?

Correlation or causation: Are you really more likely to give birth if you live near a mobile phone mast?

And, finally, oracular Jack - our magic monkey - with his latest Ashes predictions.
